Serious gun grabber alert

The Kentucky FOP Lodge 4 endorsements included mostly Democratic candidates, as usual. What's interesting is that while they endorsed Kathy Stein for the 13th Senate district, they went against the Democrat running to replace her in the House, Kelly Flood. Turns out Flood is as far to the left on guns as anyone I've seen running for office in Kentucky.

The FOP endorsed Kimberly Ward in the 75th House district. Flood's positions on guns include licensing citizens who wish to carry handguns and prohibiting citizens from carrying concealed weapons. Not even Kathy Stein, who wants to put serial numbers on individual bullets, holds such extreme positions.

Obviously, Flood's risk to public safety is too much for the FOP to stomach.
