Some people never learn


A couple of years ago, KC3 contacted the Scott county judge executive's office to tell them that they had illegal signs at the entrance to their parks. Supposedly, they took them down.


Now the signs are back.
This one is at the entrance to a park on highway 25N.
Note the illegal language banning firearms and deadly weapons at rule number 5.
That's a no-no, Judge.

Did they think that our members weren't looking or were going to forget about it?
Did they think that they'd get away with it?
The citizen who sent the photos to us says that Scott county Judge-executive George Lusby was quoted in a newspaper article as saying that he didn't agree with the CCDW law. Apparently he or someone working for him in Scott county thinks that they don't have to comply with laws that don't suit them.
We made a phone call to him today and he assured us that he'd look into it and be sure that someone took care of it. He said gee whiz, gosh all golly, he sure didn't want to go to jail for those signs. Somehow it didn't sound very sincere.
He'd better be sure that he follows up on it, or we'll be looking into what it takes to charge a public official with malfeasance. That's also against the law in Kentucky. And if we were Scott county taxpayers we'd be asking him why he's wasting our tax dollars on illegal signs to suit his personal agenda. We aren't going to forget about it, judge.
If you want to tell him what you think about it, you can find his contact information on their web page here.
And tell him that KC3 sent you.

You may want to check the parks around Cynthiana in harrison County as well.
I will try to get some pics next time I go by, but there has been a sign picturing a snub-nose revolver with the 'circle-slash' around the park on River Rd.

If there is, we want to know about it, thanks!

Maybe a dozen people openly carrying in the park would be helpful.

they have changed the signs in Harrison county, but there is still one there. Freshly repainted or so it looks... let me know where to email it.

"The County replaced all of the signs against guns several years ago. Recently we had a new sign put up at the Great Crossing Park and the designer copied from the old sign and had no guns allowed. I have instructed the road supervisor to paint over that part of the sign. If it hasn’t been done today it will be done soon. Thanks for your attention.

Chuck, the sign was painted free and an honest mistake was made. We are only hard working, honest people trying to do the best we can so please forgive me for making this mistake that I didn’t even know happened. Perhaps there are those that walk through life without fault but I am not one of those I can only say I am sorry when I make an error. Thanks for calling my attention to this one. George Lusby
