The AM news reports:
HARRODSBURG — What started as a discussion between cousins opened the door to make history for individuals in the deaf community in Kentucky.
An interpreter for the deaf, Tina McFarland Savelyev had heard on numerous occasions how many in the deaf community would like to earn their licenses to carry concealed weapons.
“Kentucky’s deaf citizens wanted to be legal just like its hearing citizens,” Savelyev said. “When the deaf folks would ask their local instructors, the process became paralyzed due to the need for interpreters.”
