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.
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.
The legislation is Senate Bill 60.
