    Senate Bill 60

    Didn't see a post about it here, so here's a bone for all the CC peeps.

    http://www.wkyt.com/home/headlines/C...245093801.html

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A bill to allow concealed deadly weapons in Kentucky bars has passed its first committee hearing in the Legislature.

    The Senate Licensing and Occupations Committee approved the measure Tuesday. The bill's sponsor, Republican Sen. John Schickel of Union, is the committee's chairman.
    Glad to see the media actually getting this part right, the last time some of the local in-state media mentioned OC carry, they made it sound like it was a brand new thing!

    Schickel says current law allows people to openly carry visible weapons into bars at the proprietor's discretion.

    Seriously, seriously, seriously? Sigh.

    COVINGTON, Ky. (Angela Ingram) -- You may soon be allowed to carry a gun into a bar in Kentucky.

    Friggen yellow journalism, say anything you want to get ratings, no matter if its inaccurate or not! Oh! NOW We're only just getting the chance to carry into a bar?! Holy crap! I guess the wording in current law about being able to Openly carry into a bar [unloaded] is really just a figment of our, and the LRC's imagination, since this is a new thing for us!

    I can't tell if editors are incompetent, or just plain stupid.

This will really speed up the licensing process. Removes the prohibition on CC in the portion of a restaurant devoted to serving alcohol. Nobody knows what that means. Amends KRS 244.125 to allow loaded guns in bars as long as the person does not drink. There are several other good bills and it looks like several will pass. Also a couple of bad ones. HB 151 would allow cities to pass gun ordinances for "public safety" issues. This would totally gut 65.870. Everything would be a safety issue. I don't think it has a chance of passing. Don't forget HB 127, KC3's airport bill. HB 127 will stop airports from regulating guns in the public areas of an airport. Several more that I'll post on when I have more time.
    Who is behind HB 151? The same ones from Lexington and Louisville that are always behind anti-gun bills?

    The two people sponsoring this are Representative Reginald Meeks (D) House District 42 Jefferson (part) (Louisville area). And Representative Mary Lou Marzian (D) House District 34 Jefferson (part) (Louisville area).

    I knew it was either Lexington or Louisville. What is it about the bigger cities that makes them so anti-gun? I give him a "F" rating as well......F for f$%# head.

    If we are residents of the county a representative is in, can we write to them and show our support for failing this bill? Seriosuly, I'll write with a quill on parchment and mail it to each one to get them to not pass this bill. How do we know which district we belong to (i.e there are dozens of reps for Jefferson County/Louisville, who do I write to?!)
