The Right to Self Defense Should Not Stop At Your Front Door

We Will Argue With the Government, So You Won't Have To

KC3 History

In 1995, a dedicated group of people came together with one goal. Their goal was to convince the Ky. General Assembly to permit the carrying of concealed weapons in Ky.  In order to attain this goal,  the Ky. Coalition for Concealed Carry was created. That organization is often referred to as KC3. In 1996, the General Assembly passed House Bill 40 which authorized the issuance of licenses to carry concealed deadly weapons by law abiding citizens of Ky. for the first time in over a century. The goal had been attained and many of those people left the organization.

Over the years, the organization has gone through many changes.The name was changed to Ky. Concealed Carry Coalition to reflect a new more diversified mission but still retain the old, familiar KC3 acronym. KC3 continues to advocate for the rights of all law-abiding Kentuckians to own possess and carry firearms in accordance with all laws and works to see less restrictive gun laws adopted.

KC3 Mission

Ky. Concealed Carry Coalition will work to advance the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in Ky. Advocate for lawful ownership and carrying of firearms by the residents of the Commonwealth. Educate our members and others on the gun laws of the Commonwealth. Insure that the citizens of Ky. are not deprived of their rights under the Ky. or Federal Constitution and the laws of the Commonwealth of KY.

KC3 Continues the Fight Against Preemption violations

KC 3 continues to fight local governments that fail to follow Ky. state law about firearms. We have confronted dozens of local governments and convinced them to change their ordinances, policy and rules to conform to state law. KC3 has sued those local governments that would not obey the law. KC3 current has lawsuits active in the courts against the City of Richmond and the City of Pikeville. KC3 now has a 16-0 record in court actions. If you know of any local government or government agency that has illegal policies or rules about guns, get in touch with KC3 and we will look into it and fight your local government so you won't have to.
