LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – The Kentucky House passed a bill aimed at allowing domestic violence victims to obtain temporary permits to carry concealed weapons.

Supporters of the bill said 45-day permits would provide protection at a time when victims feel most threatened.

Opponents said guns would make those situations even more volatile.

The measure cleared the House in a 79-13 vote.

The bill would make the temporary concealed carry permits available to people who receive protective orders meant to keep their abusers away from them.
