Gov. Bevin reacts to New Zealand mosque shootings

The governor signed the bill in March under emergency but is slated to hold a ceremony this afternoon to explain what the new law covers.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Governor Matt Bevin reacted to the mass shootings in New Zealand Friday on Twitter that left at least 49 people dead and dozens more injured.

Gov. Bevin said, “As a husband, as a father, as a Christian, as a Governor, as a Kentuckian, as an American, as a single voice in the vast sea of humanity; I repudiate this reprehensible and evil act in the strongest possible terms! May God bring peace to NZ at this time.”
