carry in a state park

I guess I could look this up but I know you Bren, would know the answer. Is it illegal to have a gun on my boat while on a state lake like Green River or Taylorsville ??

Not to my knowledge, as it's not one of the prohibited places specified by law.

Also, governments may only prohibit the carrying of weapons in BUILDINGS they own....the lake wouldn't be one of those.

I thought you weren't suposed to carry on Corps of Engineers lakes -- seem to remember some exception about transporting an unloaded gun to/from hunting locations, but think it's off limits besides that.

Someone else double check this though please.

State parks

When I emailed the AG's office a few years back about this, they said all the state parks were fine, just watch out for national waterways and parks, like Mammoth Cave, etc. Quit a few of the parks have ranges, especially down at LBL and also near Cumberland.

Yup, if they're classified as national waterways, we're sadly screwed :(

There is always a lot of debate about this over on the Lake Cumberland message boards.

I know that if I were down there living on the water on a house boat, spending a lot of time out in coves in the middle of no-where, like a lot of those folks do I would worry about it too.

Personally when we just go out on the weekends, usually to Taylorsville/Cave Run/Green River/Cumberland my gun stays in my truck.

Camping trips... well I can't imagine not carrying when camping.

The only people I've ever seen cop wise on the lake are fish and game officers. I did get a warning from a Sherriff for shooting fireworks off in front of my cabin. He just asked us to let him get down the road before we shot anymore off.
