    Does my ky ccw license pertain to carrying a spring loaded folding knife? Can I carry a knife in a bar?

    I am not aware of ANY CCW permit in the USA that permits anyhing but handguns. Think, did your Kentucky training include training in knife fighting? I am not trying to me obnoxious, but why do people ask these legal questions to ill-informed persons on a blog, when they could just as easy Google their State Rules and read it first hand themselves. A legal defense is not "someone told me on a blog." I know I got a copy of the rules with my permit, and I think most do. And I keep a copy in the car for the ill-informed cops that may stop me too.

    Well check one for Kentucky because ours does. Its a CCDW or Concealed Carry of Deadly Weapons, which means anything, knives, brass knuckles, swords, throwing stars, a piece of pipe, oh and guns too.

    Yes it does. You could even carry one openly without a CCDW, but you may run into problems with local ordinances. The CCDW eliminates that issue because it then includes all weapons other than a gun into the preemption law that Kentucky has.

    Yes you can take it into a bar, you can still take your gun into the bar as well but IT MUST BE UNLOADED. Keep a loaded magazine with you but no rounds in the firearm and you will be legal.

    Yep. Ours does, too. Our permit, in fact, is a permit to carry a "dangerous weapon" which would include about anything you want..."oh and guns too". LOL. (Now, I wonder why we didn't get any training in knife-fighting? Gonna have to see my state legislator about that.)

    Thanks for the valuable info Saltcreek.

    What I am finding is that a knife is considered a deadly weapon and can't be brought in a bar in KY? Can anyone point me to something that says otherwise? I also see no reference of carrying an unloaded gun in a bar as being legal.

    Kentucky CCW covers everything. If you want to carry throwing stars, swords, switchblade or whatever else it's covered. You can even carry a box of donuts. Haha.

    I am unaware of any KRS statute that prohibits an openly carried weapon, besides a loaded firearm, in a bar. Reference please.

    If your talking about local ordinance, then you can't unless you have a CCDW, or youre OCing a firearm, neither of which can be regulated by local ordinance.

    As for the unloaded firearm, look at KRS 244.125.

    Idaho's covers everything too.

    Ok, so from what I am reading, I can carry a knife in a bar because it isn't a loaded firearm, and, I can also carry my pistol if unloaded in a bar.
