Guns may soon be allowed at some KFC Yum! Center events

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Guns may soon be allowed at some events at the KFC Yum! Center.

The arena says it is lifting its ban on firearms. 

A member of Kentucky Concealed Carry told arena authority members that the ban violates state law. Now, event promoters and tenants, like U of L, must decide whether to allow firearms.

U of L already said it will still ban firearms at its events.

The KFC Yum! Center says it expects that will be the case with most other events.

"We anticipate that the main events where firearms would be present would be firearms shows or conventions that would come to the building," said Deanna Southerling, a spokeswoman for the KFC Yum! Center. "So we want to leave that choice up to them, but at the same time, we don't estimate that it will be the norm that firearms will always be allowed in the building."
