Anxiety Over Gun Control Runs High in Kentucky

Gun owners in Kentucky and around the country have rushed out to buy guns in fear of proposed gun control regulations proposed by President Barack Obama. Obama signed 23 executive orders last week and outlined a plan to tighten federal regulations on guns. He has asked Congress to pass legislation that would require background checks on all firearm purchases, including from private sellers not currently required under federal law. Obama also wants Congress to ban military-style assault weapons and place a limit on high-capacity magazines.
