FRANKFORT, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A new state law went into effect in Kentucky that allows people to carry guns in a lot of unlikely places.

People can now openly carry weapons into facilities owned by local governments, which include metro hall, libraries and the zoo. 

A revision to a law that went into effect this month clarifies that firearms can be regulated by the state, which voids all local ordinances and restrictions.

Metro council says other weapons, such as knives, are still banned from the metro hall.  Other policies are still under review.
