Has anyone else sent any emails or made any calls?

: ( No.

But I did go try to talk to them in person today. Apparently Hogan does not work on fridays, Osborne don't come in til late and Roberts has the flu.

I'll get their home address if you would rather send them a written letter, if you want me to.

Got an email back....

Thank you for the e mail. I appreciate your interest. You may call my office to discuss the matter. In the meantime there are several facts you should know. One is that the county courthouse and judicial annex are one building. There is a new judicial annex under construction but not due to be completed for a year.

He is right, but they are seperated. I wouldn't even say that they share the same hall. The courthouse is set up like a U with three enterences. You can go to all the public offices without being anywhere near any court proceedings.

I believe he needs to read OAG 97-9. This man is going to try everything he can -- but it won't matter.

I believe blueprints will put an end to that attempt to skirt preemption.

Here is the E-mail I sent to Mr. Hogan:

Mr. Hogan:



It has come to my attention that you are assuming you can escape the grip of KRS 65.870 by claiming the Lawrence County courthouse is in the same building as the Circuit court, District court, and Circuit clerk facilities. I suppose you should research OAG 97-9, which can be found here: http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/agopinions/KYAGOp97_9.pdf .



Openly carried firearms (concealed firearms as well since your ILLEGAL ordinance has been declared null, void, and unenforceable by authority of KRS 65.870) cannot be prohibited in any public office, and the County courthouse in Lawrence County contains all public offices; the Courthouse Annex contains the COJ. Regardless of whether these buildings are connected by a hallway or not, carry cannot be denied in the side of the Courthouse that contains your office, Mr. Osbourne's office, the County clerk, etc. One never has to enter the COJ side of the building to enter the public offices, nor do they have to do so to attend a Fiscal Court meeting; blueprints of the building(s) in question will prove this beyond a reasonable doubt.



Below you will find pertinent information that you should take into account before you needlessly spend thousands of dollars that belong to the taxpayers of Lawrence County:



Holland v. Commonwealth



From the KY Supreme Court ruling for "Holland v. Commonwealth":



"In our state the legislature is empowered only to deny to citizens the right to carry concealed weapons. The constitutional provision is an affirmation of the faith that all men have the inherent right to arm themselves for the defense of themselves and of the state. The only limitation concerns the mode of carrying such instruments. We observe, via obiter dicta, that although a person is granted the right to carry a weapon openly, a severe penalty is imposed for carrying it concealed. If the gun is worn outside the jacket or shirt in full view, no one may question the wearer’s right so to do."





Section 156b of the Kentucky Constitution; found here: http://www.lrc.ky.gov/legresou/constitu/156b.htm



Section 26 of the Kentucky Constitution; found here: http://www.lrc.state.ky.us/legresou/constitu/026.htm



KRS 67.083(3); found here: http://lrc.ky.gov/KRS/067-00/083.PDF



KRS 82.082; found here: http://lrc.ky.gov/KRS/082-00/082.PDF



KRS 65.870; found here: http://lrc.ky.gov/KRS/065-00/870.PDF



KRS 237.115; found here: http://lrc.ky.gov/KRS/237-00/115.PDF



KRS 522.020; found here: http://lrc.ky.gov/KRS/522-00/020.PDF



OAG 96-39; found here: http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/agopinions/KYAGOp96_39.pdf



OAG 99-10; found here: http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/agopinions/KYAGOp99_10.pdf



And I figured you would enjoy this as well (it appears the National Rifle Association has become interested in the matter): http://www.nraila.org/legislation/s...-in-the-courts.aspx?s=Lawrence+County&st=&ps=



Thank you,
