Bevin signed Senate Bill 150 into law Monday. It allows Kentuckians 21 and older who can lawfully possess a firearm to be able to conceal it without a permit.
Bill supporters say the bill reinforces Kentuckians' constitutional rights, while some opponents feat it will only increase gun violence.
The NRA said Kentucky is the 16th state to allow for permitless conceal carry.
The law goes into effect on June 26.
