HERALD-LEADER FRANKFORT BUREAU
FRANKFORT – The Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved a bill Thursday to allow persons who obtain a court-issued emergency protective order or a domestic violence order to obtain more quickly a license to carry a gun.
Senate Bill 106, sponsored by Sen. Jared Carpenter, R-Berea, would let the Kentucky State Police issue provisional concealed deadly weapons licenses to such persons for 45 days.
After that, the affected person would obtain a permanent license if he or she got the required training to carry a gun.
State police expect it would take three business days for them to issue a provisional license, since a background check would be needed.
SB 106 now goes to the full Senate for its consideration.
