Kentucky bill allowing concealed carry in schools, bars filed with general assembly
FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKRC) - About two weeks after a deadly shooting at a Kroger outside Louisville, a Kentucky lawmaker wants concealed guns in schools, college campuses, day cares, bars and other places where they are currently banned.
A concealed carry bill has been filed with the general assembly. Lawmakers considered similar bills in the last session, but those measures saw little-to-no action.
According to the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, more than 437,000 concealed carry permits have been issued by the state since 1996.
