General Assembly Approves Bill for Gun Dealer Zoning

Frankfort, KY – Local zoning restrictions would not apply to federally
licensed gun dealers and manufacturers under
a bill approved by the Kentucky General Assembly.
Under the legislation, gun dealers and gun makers
could operate alongside any other business, and
gun importers would be safe from zoning restrictions.

The measure passed over the objections of some
Louisville lawmakers, who questioned whether
residents would worry about the presence of such
businesses. Supporters say those who have
federal licenses will operate their businesses in
a responsible manner.
