  • "Lawmakers are pushing three identical bills to exempt Kentucky-made guns and ammunition from federal background checks, dealer licenses and other national regulations if the items remain in the state." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "The shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ, that killed six people and injured others has brought renewed attention to the gun control debate, and two Democratic state lawmakers are trying to stop firearms from being brought inside the state capitol building. However, given the commonwealth’s fervent gun culture on both sides of the aisle, their attempts appear destined to fail even in the aftermath of the Arizona massacre." [LEO Weekly]
