This week, state Senator Reginald Thomas (D-13) pre-filed BR 172, legislation that would allow urban-county governments and consolidated local governments to regulate firearms and ammunition. This anti-gun legislation opens the door to more regulations on law abiding citizens.
If enacted, BR 172 would create a confusing patchwork of ordinances and laws, making compliance very difficult and nearly impossible for law abiding citizens. This can create a situation where gun owners and sportsmen have difficulty even knowing about certain laws and accidentally becoming ensnared, simply because they have crossed from one municipality to another.
When the Kentucky Legislature convenes in January, BR 172 will be assigned to committee, and the committee will decide whether a hearing is proper. Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated as BR 172 is formally introduced and moves through the legislative process.
