    Festival of the Horse

    OC'd at the Festival of the Horse in Georgetown with my family. Great food, great parade! No hassles from the public or LEO--pretty smooth sailing. Only one conversation with a vendor. He asked how long I had my carry license and I informed him of our rights in KY. He was very friendly but...

    Red River Gorge

    I open carried this weekend in Red River Gorge--great weather and a lot of fun. Yesterday, the Wolfe County Sheriff was conducting a traffic stop looking for intoxicated drivers. I let him know that I had a gun on my hip. "Yeah, I know, I see it," was his reply. He looked at my license and...

    5/3 Bank

    Our 5/3 bank here in Georgetown had a "No Weapons" sticker on their front door provided, ironically, by the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce. Last year I emailed corporate about if this decision was made by the bank manager or if it was corporate policy. Their reply follows: Thank you for...

    Another HL Gun Article

    I confess I didn't read every single word, but this seems like a very well written, well researched article on KY's preemption law. I'm glad that our government agencies are being exposed by the media and being held accountable. I can't help but think, however, that they (HL) is trying to rile...

    Proposed Anti-Gun Legislation

    Just came across this article today: http://www.lex18.com/news/lawmakers-proposing-measure-to-reduce-gun-violence/ I don't think the bill has left committee yet, and don't know if it will. I don't think it has much chance of passing the House or any chance of passing the Senate. Nevertheless...

    Castle Doctrine in Georgetown

    Just read this headline: http://www.lex18.com/news/georgetown-man-shoots-burglar/ I don't believe that the Castle Doctrine was ever intended to be used offensively. Although the details aren't clear yet, I think that this is a good example of the use and the importance of the CD.

    Scott County Courthouse

    The Scott County Fiscal Court would apparently prefer citizens to openly carry their firearms are there are ordinances against CC. A friend and I were OCing at our county's Republican convention. He got there first and apparently had a run in with a couple deputies. They asked him to leave...

    Boone County Carry

    Thought this was an interesting article. I wish it was more specific. I don't know if they are reconsidering whether or not to allow CC in public buildings or on public property in general. Certainly the latter may not be regulated...
