KRS § 237.110 (16), which governs pistol-free zones, states that concealed carry is prohibited in:
(a) Any police station or sheriff’s office;
(b) Any detention facility, prison, or jail;
(c) Any courthouse, solely occupied by the Court of Justice courtroom, or court proceeding;
(d) Any meeting of the governing body of a county, municipality, or special district (If passed by local ordinance); or any meeting of the General Assembly or a committee of the General Assembly, except that nothing in this section shall preclude a member of the body, holding a concealed deadly weapon license, from carrying a concealed deadly weapon at a meeting of the body of which he or she is a member;
(e) Any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense beer or alcoholic* beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to that purpose;
(f) Any elementary or secondary school facility** without the consent of school authorities as provided in KRS 527.070, any child-caring facility as defined in KRS 199.011, any day-care center as defined in KRS 199.894, or any certified family child-care home as defined in KRS 199.8982, except however, any owner of a certified child-care home may carry a concealed firearm into the owner’s residence used as a certified child-care home;

* The prohibition against carrying a concealed pistol in an establishment that serves alcohol applies only to the “portion of the establishment [that is’ primarily devoted to that purpose. This means that concealed carry is allowed in restaurants that serve alcohol, with only the bar section off-limits to permit holders.
**With respect to the prohibition of weapons on school property, KRS § 527.070 (3)(a) states that adults may have weapons in their vehicles as long as they do not remove the weapons from the vehicle or brandish them while on school property.
