Beshear satisfied with National Guard security

Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear says he and Adjutant Gen. Edward Tonini are satisfied with the security policies in place for the state's National Guard facilities and recruiting stations following the shooting death of five servicemen in Tennessee last week.
    
Beshear says a state policy allows active duty guardsmen to carry weapons in state facilities and recruiting stations as long as their commanding officer approves it. He also said guardsmen could carry concealed weapons if they have a concealed weapons permit.
    
Republican state Rep. Kevin Bratcher has asked Beshear to issue an executive order allowing guardsmen to carry concealed weapons without a permit. Beshear said the order was unnecessary.
