State Representative Eric Koch (R-65) has filed NRA-supported HB1011, the “Indiana Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act” for the upcoming 2007 General Assembly session.
In filing HB1011, Representative Koch seeks to ensure that law-abiding firearm owners in the Hoosier State will not be stripped of their Right to Keep and Bear Arms during a declared state of emergency or disaster. Specifically, this proposal states that, “The state, a political subdivision, or any other person may not prohibit or restrict the lawful possession, transfer, sale, transportation, storage, display or use of firearms or ammunition during a disaster emergency, an energy emergency, or a local disaster emergency.”
A special thank you goes to Representative Koch for stepping forward to offer this important bill, and for his continued efforts to protect the Second Amendment.
Please be sure to contact your representatives in the General Assembly at (317) 232-9600, and strongly encourage him or her to support and vote for HB1011 in the 2007 legislative session.
