Proposed bill would make Kentucky a second amendment sanctuary

By Braxton Caudill,


FRANKFORT, Ky. ( FOX 56 ) – A bill has been filed that would make Kentucky a “second amendment sanctuary”.

Rep. Josh Bray (R-Mt. Vernon) proposed House Bill 29, which would impede the enforcement of federal gun laws in the state.

Bray said 115 counties have enacted similar legislation, but his proposed bill would put it into law statewide.

The representative is concerned about current gun law rhetoric at the federal level and concludes that if the bill was passed it could not be enforced.

“If its any kind of assault weapons ban, if its any kind of magazine capacity ban, any ammunition ban, then absolutely, with this bill they could not cooperate with enforcing a ban on firearms, ammunition, or firearm accessories,” said Bray.

The bill would not restrict any future state or federal law banning guns from being created.
