    Kentucky Carry

    We are planning on a trip to Dale hollow park for a week. We both have are HCP permits here in TN. Are there any special concerns or places I can research for more answers. Do I have to inform LEO of my carry status? Thanks for any replies.

    Effective, July 15, 1998, Kentucky recognizes valid carry concealed weapons licenses issued by other states and, subject to the provisions of Kentucky law, a person holding a valid license from another state may carry a concealed deadly weapon in Kentucky.

    A concealed firearm or other deadly weapon SHALL NOT be carried in the following places:

    Police station or sheriff's office.
    Detention facility, prison or jail.
    Courthouse (Court of Justice, courtroom or court proceeding).
    County, municipal, or special district governing body meetings.
    Meeting of governing body of a county, municipality, or special district.
    General Assembly session, including committee meetings.
    Any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense beer or alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to that purpose.
    Elementary or secondary school facilities (without the consent of school authorities).
    Child-caring facilities, day care centers, or any certified family child care home.
    Areas within an airport where restricted access is controlled by the inspection of persons or property.
    Any place where federal law prohibits the carrying of a firearm.
    In addition to the above restrictions, units of state and local governments and postsecondary education facilities (colleges, universities, technical schools and community colleges) have the authority to limit the carrying of concealed weapons on property owned or controlled by them (KRS 237.115). You should check with units of state and local government as well as postsecondary education facilities prior to carrying a concealed weapon on their property.

    Also, KRS 527.070 prohibits unlawful possession (whether carried openly or concealed) of a weapon on school property, except for certain specified exceptions. KRS 244.125 prohibits loaded firearms (concealed or otherwise) in places where alcohol is sold by the drink, except for certain specified exceptions.

    In addition, Kentucky law does not prohibit the owners of private premises from excluding persons carrying firearms. Failure to vacate private premises when asked to do so could result in a criminal trespass charge.

    Do I have to inform LEO of my carry status?
    Not required, but some think it wise to inform LEO if carrying.

    I went to Kentucky in May and I was presently surprised about how laxed their gun laws are. There is no duty to inform, car transport is as easy as pie. You can carry (sterile) loaded as long as its clearly visible or in the glovebox. If you are an OCer, Kentucky is also one of the OCDO, "gold star" carry states. When I was there I encountered many LEO's who obviously noticed my sidearm, but did not stop me, nor care about my carry choice. Kentucky is a great gun state, enjoy your stay!

    I had one encounter with a LEO at a motel when traveling through KY two years ago. He was very calm and cool about me being armed...he even acknowledged my good taste in firearms (Kimber Ultra).
    Now he was only one instance of a KY LE contact, but he left me with a good memory of the incident.

    Stay armed...go KY...stay safe!

    You do not have to notify LEO of carrying, unless asked. However Kentucky now has a minimum caliber requirement of 9mm, no mouse guns are allowed within the Commonwealth.



    Okay, just kidding about that last part :)

    Kentucky is about as good as it gets when it comes to carrying.
