It was a cold rainy morning in Kentucky but that didn’t keep hundreds of Patriots from staying home. Republican Rep Thomas Massie and former DC police officer Dick Heller were on hand to give speeches.

The name Dick Heller may ring a bell as it was his landmark 2008 U.S. Supreme Court victory in District of Columbia v. Heller overturned the district’s gun ban which gave the people their right to defend their homes back.

“Be vigilant. Don’t let the comrade governor turn Kentucky into Baltimore, Detroit, Venezuela … Chicago.”
– Dick Heller

During Kentucky’s 2020 legislative session there have been a few gun-related bills introduced.

Rep. Robert Goforth, a Republican, wants to close what he calls the “loopholes” in the concealed carry law. His House Bill 30 would still ban weapons in courtrooms and jails, but permit holders could carry almost anywhere else, including schools and bars.

Rep. George Brown, a Democrat, wants to place further restrictions on gun possession and sale, especially of high-capacity weapons with his House Bill 76.

“Quasi-weapons of war and mass destruction, I don’t think we need them on our streets.”
– Rep. George Brown

While there has not been a “Red Flag Law” introduced in Kentucky, they have been introduced in at least 17 states plus The District of Columbia.

Rep. Thomas Massie, A Republican, has also introduced H.R. 5716. It would repeal the federal law that currently prohibits 18-20 year-olds from buying a handgun at retail from a federally licensed dealer.

“Why should a 20-year-old single mom be denied the right to defend herself and her children? 18-, 19-, and 20-year-olds are considered adults and are able to vote on important public policy issues. They can also form business contracts, get married, and serve in the military. As adults, these Americans should not be deprived of basic constitutional rights.”
– U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY)

“We can’t just whittle away one little piece here, one little piece there. “Then the (U.S. Constitution) doesn’t mean what it says anymore.”
– Calen Studler of Frankfort
