Newport changes ordinance banning guns along riverfront

NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - Newport City Commissioners made a change to a city ordinance on Monday, which has been in place since 1992.

The ordinance banned people from carrying a gun along the riverfront. However, since it does not abide by Kentucky's concealed carry laws, Newport had to revoke the ordinance.

Newport Police Chief Tom Collins told FOX19 although the city had the ordinance in place, it wasn't enforced.
