The Kentucky State Police web site; "Effective July 12, 2006, U.S. citizenship is required to be eligible to obtain a CCDW license. The CCDW License Application - Citizenship Affidavit (KSP 131) must be completed and submitted to the sheriff of your county of residence to be attached to the application (KSP)." I have a CCDW license and live in Kentucky. I would have never thought anyone needed to debate this.What the FU(K!! I do not see why this issue was never covered before? Why did we have to put someone in office, pay them millions of dollars to figure this one out. to all our beloved men and women of office, this time you really got that thumb up your a$$. I am new here and it would not let me post the URL to this website, but it is under the Kentucky State Police website. Under the Qualifications for a CCDW license. Oh yes, does your state require citizenship to carry a concealed weapons license?
