Kentucky AG: cities can't ban carry by employees

I'm not from Kentucky, so I don't know if there's any controversy about this opinion.

Any such local authority is strictly limited, the attorney general’s office said in its review requested by the city of Ashland. State law allows local governments to prohibit concealed weapons in buildings they own, lease or control, the opinion said.

However, they cannot bar their employees from openly carrying firearms inside local government-owned buildings or possessing weapons — whether concealed or not — on public property that is not a building, including public parks, the opinion said. They also can’t be prevented from possessing firearms in their personal or local government-owned vehicles, it added.

Mad mommies would get even madder because they would meet at public libraries and a bunch of us would show-up at their meetings open carrying. They could not have closed meetings. You can open carry at the capitol building, but no knives.

Kentucky makes Texas look like a blue state.
