Blows my mind. Your services obviously were needed there far worse than they where needed here in Owingsville. I would like to hear the audio..even though it will piss me off. This is easy for me to say since its not my fighting this particular battle, but please dont give up. Push the hell out of this and make them pay.Met with the county attorney of Lawrence county this morning, if you would call it that. The attorneys name is mike hogan, and he is running on a VERY PRO 2A platform for Commonwealth Attorney in Lawrence County. He says he is PRO 2A, yet he has no understanding of state firearm law, which causes some concern. This is a man who is trying to deceive voters by claiming to support our right to keep and BEAR arms,
when he has made it so blatantly obvious he does not respect that right, or the rule of law in our great state! He does not respect statutes passed by the STATE legislature to keep locales from doing what Lawrence is doing, depriving citizens, (who he works for and is paid by), of their rights granted to them by the state and federal constitutions, and state law. I have given him, the county
judge/exec. John Osbourne, and the county sherrif all documents pertaining to the issue of prohibiting citizens from openly carrying in the county courthouse, sherrif's dept., and any other non court of justice building, and
they refuse to comply. They insist they can Enforce the no carry provision of their ILLEGAL ordinance, and also arrest for violating this ordinance! I should state they do not even have signs posted which they must have in order for the "no concealed weapons" part to even be enforceable, as stated in KRS 237.115, and as everyone knows, and should know if you are a county attorney, you can not arrest or threaten arrest for violating the "no concealed weapons" part of the ordinance, (the only legal part).
The documents I have given them and they admitted they received are state statutes 237.115, 65.870(amended), Kentucky League of Cities documents that inform of what they can and can't do, and the document that verifies you can not prohibit, especially not remove and threaten arrest, anyone who is openly carrying a firearm. I attempted today to give the CA copies of all relevant AG opinions, but he violently ripped them out of my hands and threw them on the ground, (you can hear this in the audio). I was barred from ever entering the county courthouse again while carrying, I was threatened to be
arrested, I was illegally detained, was threatened with arrest again, was told it was illegal to carry in their courthouse, was told by the "sherrif" that SB161? Did not pass, I informed him HB500 did pass and was the only new statute that pertains to this issue, and he said it did not because all it dealt with was "some stamp placed on a firearm manufactured in Ky?" I believe he was speaking of the KFFA, which has nothing to do with the issue at hand, and they tried to persuade me to enter the sherrif dept. Knowing I was carrying concealed, (entrapment). I will post the audio when I get to a computer, and a lawsuit is going to be files on several officials in Lawrence County and the County itself.
