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.
