Moms Demand Action rallies against permitless carry in Kentucky

From Jack Brammer, Lexington Herald Leader:

The National Rifle Association, which is pushing the so-called permitless carry bill, said the bill will give law-abiding gun owners the ability to better protect themselves and their loved ones.

Connie Coartney, volunteer leader with the Kentucky chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said the measure — Senate Bill 150 — “would dismantle Kentucky’s permitting system that has kept our communities safe for years.”

“SB 150 would allow some people with dangerous histories to carry a loaded handgun in public, with no background check and no safety training, putting all Kentuckians at risk,” Coartney said. “This is a dangerous and irresponsible piece of legislation and we will not rest until it’s defeated.”
