KY: Permitless concealed carry bill gets closer to becoming Kentucky law

Legislation that would let people carry concealed guns in Kentucky without first getting a permit cleared another big hurdle in the state legislature Wednesday.
That was despite opposition from the Louisville Metro Police Department and a group of concerned mothers.
Senate Bill 150 swiftly passed in the state Senate recently, putting the Kentucky chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a nationwide organization focused on preventing gun violence, on high alert.
The bill still needs the Kentucky House of Representatives' approval, but on Wednesday the House Judiciary Committee cleared its path to the House floor for a full vote.
|No permit law will stop, nor has stopped, violent criminals from carrying guns. That's just a fact.
So, then, what is the purpose, yea, the need, for a law-abiding taxpayer having a permit to carry?
With a permit law: bad guys will still carry
Without a permit law: bad guys will still carry
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
The issue isn't the guns, it's the people carrying and using them, and making folks who aren't criminals purchase a carry permit not only doesn't solve the problem, it isn't even aimed at the problem. Not really.
