What is CCW?

CCW is shorthand for Carrying a Concealed Weapon.  This is generally a misdemeanor in Kentucky, charged as a Class A misdemeanor.  Class A misdemeanors are punishable by up to 12 months in jail, $500 fine or both.  Also, CCW typically carries forfeiture of the weapon.  If the person has a previous felony conviction, the charge is enhanced to a felony. The elements for CCW in Kentucky are spelled out in KRS 527.020 - Carrying concealed deadly weapon. (1) A person is guilty of carrying a concealed weapon when he or she carries concealed a firearm or other deadly weapon on or about his or her person. There are numerous exceptions to this rule, in addition to the permit that a person can apply for and take a class to obtain a CCW permit.  Once a permit is granted, there can be no prosecution for CCW unless in violation of other rules or regulations. Also note that CCW must be a CONCEALED firearm.  It is perfectly permissible to walk down the street with a loaded firearm that is plainly visible. If you have been charged with CCW or any other crime in Northern Kentucky, contact the office of Bouldin Law Firm and schedule a consultation with Micahel Bouldin.  Email at [email protected] or call 859-581-6453.
