FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Governor Matt Bevin on Monday signed Senate Bill 150 into law that allows Kentuckians 21 and older, who can lawfully have a firearm, to conceal it without a permit, according to the National Rifle Association.

The NRA backed the bill, which supporters say reinforces Kentuckians’ constitutional rights.  Opponents argued the move could increase gun violence.
