    The law at present only allows certain persons, such as current or retired county attorneys, commonwealth's attorneys, judges, and current and retired law enforcement officers to carry concealed weapons "at all times and at all locations."

    Goforth said the bill was a response to public shootings. Places where guns could be carried by a concealed carry permit holder are county courthouses, local and state government meetings, elementary and secondary schools, public colleges, child care facilities and state-licensed healthcare facilities.

    Ah, the ubiquitous retired cop cutout. I've never understood why this is almost a standard part of so much legislation, at all levels of gov. What's the big deal about being a retired cop? Are they better people than non-cop retired people? And even if they were, which I highly doubt, aren't all these retired cop cutouts a violation of the 14th Amendment's equal protection clause?
