    Default CCW No Permit

    Kentucky is doing away with Permits for CCW, no more classes anyone wanting to Carry Concealed is open.

    What does that do, however, for when you want to travel to other states that would have reciprocity?

    You abide by the laws of the state you're in regardless of reciprocity.

    I expect KY will continue to issue permits to those who what them. If you live in a permitless state I wouldn't recommend traveling to a state that requires a permit. If you get stopped and tell the officer that your state doesn't require a permit and you don't have one, don't expect it to end well for you.

    Abiding by them is one thing; PROVING you are when they require a piece of paper that your state no longer does can be problematic without that license in hand. Hopefully, as flphotog mentioned, they will still offer it for those who travel.

    Some states offer non-resident permits. Utah is the most notable example. If KY no longer issues a CCW permit, then get one from some other state.

    My understanding is that Kentucky is an unlicensed Open Carry state with the traditional age restrictions*, and prohibited areas**.

    The new law, as expressed by the NRA (paraphrase): " ...simply decriminalizes wearing a jacket over the open carry weapon."

    People in Kentucky can still apply for CCW, pass background check, take classes, demonstrate proficiency, etc. In fact, it's recommended for those who want to travel to states with reciprocity.


    • *those younger than 21 years old
    • people who have been convicted of certain crimes involving controlled substances within the last three years
    • people with two or more convictions within the last three years for certain crimes involving alcohol
    • people who owe at least one year’s worth of child support money
    • those for whom an outstanding warrant for a child support or paternity proceeding exists,
    • those who have not completed the required firearms safety course, and
    • convicted felons and those convicted of other specified violations.
    • **any police station or sheriff’s office;
    • any detention facility, prison, or jail;
    • any courthouse, solely occupied by the Court of Justice courtroom, or court proceeding;
    • any meeting of the governing body of a county, municipality, or special district, or any meeting of the General Assembly unless the permit holder is a member of that body;
    • any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on premises which is primarily devoted to that purpose;
    • any elementary or secondary school facility, child caring facility, day care center;
    • any area of an airport to which access is controlled by the inspection of persons; and
    • any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law.
