Kentucky became the latest state to adopt a permitless gun-carry system when Republican governor Matt Bevin signed Senate Bill 150 into law on Monday.

The law will allow anyone who is over the age of 21 to legally carry a concealed firearm on their person so long as they are legally allowed to possess a firearm under state and federal law. It eliminates the state’s previous permitting system as well as the training requirements and fees associated with it. Kentucky is now the 16th state to adopt permitless carry, often called “constitutional carry,” and the third to do so this year.

Gov. Bevin said the law merely recognizes constitutionally protected rights in his opinion.
