Kentucky Attorney General Says Cities Can Enforce Concealed Carry Ban Only In Buildings With Ordinance


LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY — Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron ruled that cities can ban concealed carry in city-owned buildings, but only if there is an ordinance that would make it illegal.

Cameron’s opinion, announced Monday, stems from opinions requested by the City of Ashland. He said cities can only enforce a concealed carry ban if there’s an ordinance that makes it illegal. Cities can’t prohibit open carry in those buildings.

It was also noted that local governments could not ban employees or others from carrying outside any city-owned building.

Knowing what is legal and what isn’t can be a challenge, as we have Federal, State and even Local laws on the books that can affect your ability to carry legally. It’s always best practice to understand the laws as they pertain to your life and where you live, and where you’re traveling to.
