FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Gov. Matt Bevin is making headlines after posting a video showing himself throwing smoke bombs and shooting grenade launchers.

In the video, posted Sunday afternoon, Bevin says when he was elected, he talked about blowing things up like red tape and corruption.

The video was filmed at the Kentucky State Penitentiary’s gun range in Eddyville, according to the Courier Journal.

A spokesperson for Attorney General Andy Beshear says Bevin should refund every tax dollar used to make the video.
