    ** FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The Kentucky Senate has passed a bill that would allow concealed deadly weapons to be carried into bars and alcohol-serving establishments, so long as the carrier does not drink.
    *
    ** The bill's sponsor, Republican Sen. John Schickel of Union, says that while the bill strictly prohibits those carrying concealed weapons from drinking, the bill does not contain a provision that would allow a bartender to know whether a patron is concealing a weapon.*
    *
    ** Opponents of the measure, such as Democratic Sens. Reggie Thomas of Lexington and Morgan McGarvey of Louisville, say that while some of the bill's clauses on gun safety training are admirable, they are concerned about alcohol and gun safety.
    *
    ** The bill passed out of the Senate on a 30-4 vote.

    30-4 Huh? Sounds like you guys don't have much a problem with idiots in your state Senate.

    A step in the right direction.

    It was time for a new signature. This is what you get.

    seems cut and dry to me. guns and booze do not mix. (we won't talk about deer camp lol)

    In my state you can carry in a bar and can have a BAC of .04. That's like half a beer for some folks.

    True they don't mix. Hence the provision in the bill for sobriety.

    I'm sure some will drink anyway.

    But I still think its a good bill.

    I myself dont drink, but its nice to know that if I wanted to go hang out with some buddies at a bar, I would not have to worry about disarming. Glad to see Ky is not back stepping like some states.

    Good for you.......Seems like most States (states rights) are waking up to alot of things...Federal Govt is bloated/over reaching / out of control...I see trouble on the horizon...Texas will probably lead the way.

    South Carolina legislature passed a similar law this year, and the Governor signed it. So now one more restriction of our rights has gone away.
