Many areas are still dealing with flooding, even as snow and sleet start to replace the rain. Some of the local major rivers are above flood stage and still rising. The good news is, many of the others have crested and will start to fall. The snow and sleet will continue through much of the day, before wrapping up tonight. Most areas will see several inches of accumulation. Keep it locked to WYMT for updates.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Protesters in Louisville are criticizing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for voting against a bill that would have expanded background checks for gun sales.
A group of about 30 people, mostly women, held signs in front of McConnell's Louisville offices on Monday afternoon. They dropped off a petition with 1,200 signatures that demanded the senator support "sensible gun reform."
McConnell voted against the bill last month, and it eventually failed to get a 60-vote majority needed to advance.
The group included members from Moms Demand Action and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.
McConnell's office said in a statement Monday that "President Obama's allies have been attacking Sen. McConnell on this issue for months, but his support for Kentuckians' Second Amendment rights will not waver."
