  1. Rick Poe says:

    I support allowing ccdw holders to carry their concealed weapons anywhere in the Commonwealth including schools and churches. I do think it may be a good idea to require ccdw holders to “qualify” with rheir weapons to prove proficiency, or to make the initial range requirement when getting a ccdw license more challenging for the same reason.

  2. Bruce says:

    Nationally, as well as here in Kentucky, a person is ten times more likely to be a victim of a violent crime perpetrated by a police officer than to be the victim of a violent crime perpetrated by person with a CCDW license, according to FBI, DOJ and state police statistics. You’d be hard pressed to find a more responsible and civic minded group than those with a CCDW license. As for the calls for additional training, I’m always in favor of that, but I’m always opposed to government requirements for it. In the event of a school shooting, ANY good person with a gun would be better than none, which is what we have now.

  3. Gary Roland says:

    My fear is that this bill will never make it out of committee. If it gets to the House floor I think it passes. I have names and phone number of all of the Judiciary Committee if anyone needs them. I’ve already called about half of them to leave comments.

    I guess that I should leave my e-mail address. garyroland@outlook.com

    Veterans with CCDs licenses are a great resource for “distributed public protection””. Uniformed law enforcement can do little to prrotect citizenry from crime…only respond when there is a crime occurring with a delayed response time. Imagine a world where armed veterans are scattered throughout all public venues. This concept of “distributed public protection” makes sense in Odeys world.

  6. Charlie corbett says:

    Odeys world above should be “today’s world”….damned auto-complete.

  7. Paul Sova says:

    It is imperative to have citizens watch out for one another. We can quickly restore order, when there are no gun free zones( sitting ducks are easy targets). I fully support house bill ‘221’. Murders are cowards, they will think twice if they are subject to retaliation!

  8. Ron Bolin says:

    Unfortunately we I living in a world that is fillewith so much hate and violence . I feel that it has become a necessity.
    I fully support the idea of law biding citizens
    that are qualified to carry a concealed weapon
    to be able to provide protection for not only
    students, But people in the work force and public.

    I agree

    My girlfriend and I work for a university. “Active shooter training” has been scheduled as part of our professional development. We would feel much safer if we were empowered by being legally able to use a CCDW on campus, however.
