The change specifies that "local governments can't regulate firearms.''<br>&nbsp;<br>That means people can openly carry weapons into facilities owned by municipalities, such as libraries, parks, the zoo and city halls. Cities can ban concealed weapons under another state law.<br>&nbsp; Fri, 25 Jan 2013 15:32:45 +0000 Associated Press 26406 at http://wuky.org Firearms Now Allowed in Public Facilities in Ky.
