    KY: Proposal would allow concealed weapons in public schools

    KY: Proposal would allow concealed weapons in public schools

    The proposed law (House Bill -221) sponsored by Rep Tim Moore would allow concealed carry in public schools. Currently unlawful possession of a weapon on school property is a felony with a possible 5 year prison term.

    "Kentucky House representative Tim Moore (R-18) sponsors House Bill-221, a measure that would loosen restrictions on where concealed deadly weapons permit holders could carry."

    Representative Tim Moore calls it an 'Anti-Terrorism Bill'.

    "If passed, the law would allow anyone with a concealed carry permit to carry a weapon at a public school or on the campus of a public university. Moore calls it an “anti-terrorism” bill, not a gun bill."

    The article goes on to say that the bill was introduced on January 11 and has to head to a 'judiciary committee' before going for a vote in the House.
    I am not a lawyer, I study the history of gun control laws.

    There is already a thread about this. Poetdante posted about it a week ago. You might want to ask for the two threads to be merged or you could just delete this one. You can read the other one here:
    Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

    William Pitt

    "If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

    Samuel Adams
