Permitless Concealed Carry Goes into Effect Today

Starting today, anyone 21 and older who can legally possess a gun in Kentucky can carry it concealed with no permit required, following a bill that was signed into law back in March.

Senate Bill 150 eliminates the six-hour gun-safety training course, background check and $60 application fee the state had required. The new law also removed an exclusion that prevented Kentuckians from getting a concealed-carry permit if they owed more than a year of child support or had a misdemeanor alcohol or drug convictions within three years.

However, permitless carry will still be barred where prohibited by federal law.
