U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- On Friday, 1 March 2019, Constitutional Carry, SB 150, passed the Kentucky House with a vote of 60-37. On 14 February, two weeks earlier, SB 150 passed the full Kentucky Senate, 29-8.
The bill was watched intently by Second Amendment supporters. It passed the House just before 1 p.m.
Gutshot II, a long-term, vigorous contributor to OpenCarry.org, was in the gallery of the House of Representatives in Kentucky when SB150 passed.

Gutshot II: I was there. Vote was 60-37.
Now the bill goes to Matt Bevin, the strongly conservative governor of Kentucky. Governor Bevin is widely expected to sign the bill into law. Matt Bevin was given an endorsement by Gun Owners of America in his governors race.
When Governor Bevin signs SB150 into law, Kentucky will become the third state this year to pass a Constitutional Carry, or permitless carry bill in 2019. Kentucky will become the 16th state with Constitutional Carry.

Kentucky will implode and we’re ALL GONNA DIE!!
Bevin tried to primary him but unfortunately ut did not work. I am just thankful we got Bevin as governor.
Did he say when he might sign it?
I have been hoping for Constitutional Carry here in KY for years and emailed Bevin about it probably 2 years ago.
Rand still needs to get the US Senate. States this smart should not have to endure a somewhat never Trumper like him.
Why is it called “Constitutional” carry?
We shouldn’t need legislation to tell us we have a constitutional God Given natural right to defend ourselves.
Many things that should not be, are.
This legislation repeals a bunch of bad law.
It is not perfect, but is a reasonable facsimile of the state of law when the Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791.
At that time, no permit was required to carry weapons, openly or concealed.
Good news. Too bad we can’t get this in Texas.
Do you know where the RTC graphic is maintained? Love watching all the states change colors.
Yes. It is at Radical Gun Nuttery.
Excellent. Thanks! That map keeps getting better and better.
“You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” though.
My opionon only: It reaffirms an allowance that is acknowledged by the 2nd amendment that always existed naturally before the document was even written down and codified.
