Knowing your state’s gun laws is crucial because it ensures you’re within your rights when carrying your firearm away from your home. It’s also essential to learn your rights and responsibilities when taking a gun into another state. Kentucky is a permitless-carry state, making concealed carry legal without a permit, but the same laws don’t apply when crossing state lines.
Kentucky has about 4.5 million residents, of which 397,000, or 8.9%, have a Concealed Carry of Deadly Weapons (CCDW) license. This license isn’t necessary when carrying a concealed weapon in Kentucky, but it’s essential when taking your gun out of state. Anyone 21 and up can apply for one.
Kentucky requires completion of a state-approved training course before receiving a CCDW. Concealed Coalition can provide this training for you, ensuring you can legally carry your firearm in other states in the country. Contact us for more information on the training we offer in Kentucky.
