On Monday, October 26, Lawrence County officials voted 4-0 during a fiscal court hearing in favor of filing suit with the Commonwealth of Kentucky to remove the current right of Kentucky’s residents to lawfully open carry in courtrooms across the state.

Thanks to NRA members in the Bluegrass State, House Bill 500 which further strengthened Kentucky’s current firearms preemption statutes by more narrowly limiting the regulation of firearms at a local level, was enacted into law during the 2012 session.

With such strong pro-Second Amendment statutes on the books related to local gun control, Lawrence County officials have decided to backpedal on the progress we have already made.  Kentucky’s already overly burdened court system would be further burdened with a lawsuit that will directly infringe upon your individual gun rights.
