FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18)– Governor Bevin has signed a bill into law, allowing people to carry a concealed handgun without a permit or training.

Last week, Bevin said Senate Bill 150 was supported by the vast majority of Kentuckians.

It was backed by the National Rifle Association and won final approval from lawmakers last month.

Supporters say the measure makes no changes regarding where and when people can possess concealed weapons.

Opponents disapproved of dropping the training requirement.
