I see people OC'ing all the time here in Ashland. I saw two people a couple days ago at Walmart within an hour.
As for Charley's incident ... it is a rarity! Things like this RARELY happen in Kentucky, and I can pretty much guarantee that if Charley were to take this to the Kentucky Court of Appeals and/or the Kentucky Supreme Court that it would end up in his favor.
Do not allow ONE incident to intimidate you from exercising a right. Thousands of people carry openly across Kentucky each and every day and have no problems. I would say you have better odds of getting struck by lightning than getting arrested for OC'ing in Kentucky, so don't let it stop you from carrying. It's fairly certain that you will have an encounter with a peace officer at some point, but it will more than likely be a friendly encounter and will consist of nothing but a simple question or a glance.
If you allow one tyrant to keep you from exercising your rights then you have allowed tyranny to win, and that is NOT an option.
Know the laws; know the Constitution; CARRY your firearm!
BTW, if you are no longer a resident of CT then your CT license is no longer active. If you are a resident of Kentucky then you cannot carry on your CT license because it is now void. Your only option is to carry openly until you can obtain a KY CDWL or a non-resident CDWL of another state that is recognized by Kentucky. You can carry concealed without a license in your vehicle in certain places and on certain property, so I would suggest you study the laws thoroughly.
KRS chapters 237 and 527 are the main chapters to study, but there are several others that are pertinent. These two chapters can be found here:
Study and carry on!
