The Hill reports:
Kentucky lawmakers have passed a bill that would make the state a so-called Second Amendment sanctuary, prohibiting local law enforcement from enforcing federal firearm bans.
Kentucky’s bill passed the state House in a 78-19 vote last month, and cleared the state Senate on Wednesday 27-9. Both are Republican-majority chambers. It now heads to Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear for his signature.
A federal judge in Missouri struck down a similar law in that state earlier this month on the grounds that state law can’t trump federal law, and that a law doing so would be unconstitutional.

Republicans hold supermajorities in both state chambers and can easily override Beshear’s veto.
