More about US Arms in Kentucky

The Covington Journal of June 1, 1862 has this article as an update to a previous one

The Louisville Courier of the 27th says:
"In conversation, with an honorable and high-minded gentleman, who has the distribution of these arms in an important section of the State, a few days since, he frankly said that they were in the main going into the hands of those who would use them to drive Lincoln's troops back should they march into his county or vicinity!

And a Captain of a large company who have received these guns so unlawfully distributed in this State by those whose duty it is to execute the laws, assured a friend of ours, not two days ago, that his command would never fire a shot for Lincoln against Kentuckians or Southern soldiers
