FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Hundreds of protesters stood outside of the State Capitol on Saturday.

Some protesters were armed in front of the capitol as they listened to a bluegrass band. A confederate flag was also on site.

They say they are taking a stand for liberty and constitutional rights. They are also protesting some of the guidelines Governor Beshear has put in place, including wearing face masks and social distancing.
