The same person or persons who want Leftist actress Ashley Judd to be their Senator.

These parasites are everywhere. If Kentuckians allow this to pass, then say hello to Senator Judd.

Attention lawmakers and politicians -

disarming the people is EVIL.

Don’t be evil.

I’ll bet that none of the legislators wrote this, this was waiting in the wings probably written by a “progressive” think tank. It’s no coincidence that this is all happening so quickly all over the country.

No problem. You got it noticed and others added some details. Good Job!

The reason for excerpting is copyright protection. Information openly posted on a government website is not going to fall under that protection. They don't have to worry about protecting an income stream; they just take more of ours anytime they want it.

"AN ACT relating to firearms and declaring an emergency."

I'm not from Kentucky, but the use of the word, "emergency," is highly interesting. It alludes to the interests of the special constituents behind the flood of anti-Second-Amendment bills throughout our country. They are few but have had increasing control over politicians for decades (see GOP turning to the left, mercantilism against the USA, credit card processors withholding funds from firearms dealers and customers, etc.).

I lived in KY in the 1960’s and this attack on the Right to keep and bear arms never would have happened then.

"AN ACT relating to firearms and declaring an emergency."

Aye, there's the rub. Declare an emergency and allow police to seize firearms a la Katrina and now Guntersville, Alabama (if the mayor gets his way).

Now, if the so-called "Universal" background check is in effect, during the "crisis" - all the government has to do is shut down the background check computers for "public safety" (cough) and ergo! All gun transactions frozen - except within the criminal element.

Bill sponsored by libs from Louisville/Lexington. Highly unlikely to get far. Libs are always sponsoring some sort of nonsense bills for creds with their liberal constituents. Kentucky legislators have a lot more important business on their plates....

Responsible leaders in KY just recently updated KY CCDW laws for the better. This bill is not an example of better! Talk to your reps, y’all....don’t let this pass!
