Important CCDW bill signed into law by Gov. Beshear

Kentucky: Governor Beshear Signs

Concealed Carry Reform Legislation

On Thursday, March 11, House Bill 19 was signed by Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear(D).

Sponsored by State Representative Fitz Steele (D-84) and State Representative BobDamron (D-39), HB19 will now enable military personnel who are on active duty to renew their concealed carry licenses early and by mail. It also allows for those military personnel whose license expires while on active duty to renew their license within 90 days after the end of their deployment, with no late fees or other penalties.

Thank you to all those who contacted their legislators during this process.

(and KC3's special thanks for Rep. Bob Damron's continuing efforts on our behalf - CR)
