KC3 now 14-0 in litigation under Kentucky’s preemption statute

The General Assembly recently amended K.R.S. 65.870 to compel local governments (cities, counties, special districts, etc.) to repeal or amend their rules, regulations and/or ordinances that illegally restrict the right to keep and bear arms and the right to self defense.

The local governments were given six months to address these local laws and, after that, citizens and organizations such as KC3 were empowered to file suit against those localities that had failed to act on the General Assembly’s directive.

Beginning last year, KC3 began to identify localities with offending ordinances and rules and file suit. To date, fourteen (13) such lawsuits have been filed by KC3 and ultimately settled before reaching a judge or jury for a decision. The City of Hillview marked the fourteenth case.

The City of Hillview, unfortunately, refused to work with KC3.  In July of this year, KC3 was granted summary judgment against the City of Hillview and that city is now under court order to not enforce its ordinance.

Below is a list of cities and other localities where KC3 has been able to reach an agreement concerning their rules/ordinances:

  • City of Winchester
  • City of Ft. Thomas
  • Louisville Metro
  • City of Ft. Mitchell
  • City of Warsaw
  • Woodford County
  • City of Mt. Washington
  • City of Madisonville
  • City of Pikeville
  • City of Cadiz
  • City of Radcliff
  • City of Newport
  • Lexington-Fayette Airport
