Concealed weapons law for retired prosecutors passes House
Retired prosecutors would get special privileges to carry concealed weapons anywhere in the state under a measure that has just passed the state House of Representatives. Lawmakers voted 90-4 Monday in favor of the measure that now goes to the Senate for consideration. Democratic state Rep. Bob Damron of Nicholasville is sponsor of the bill, which would extend to commonwealth's attorneys and county attorneys the same right that already has been given to retired judges. The measure is intended to allow retired prosecutors to defend themselves if attacked.
