Indianapolis-Marion County, Indiana City-County Council Delays Action on Possible Discharge Ban!

Friday, April 20, 2007

Please Continue Contacting Your City-County Councillor!


On Tuesday, April 17, the City-County Council's Rules and Public Policy Committee postponed action on Proposal 174, a city/county-wide discharge ordinance that would drastically impact sport shooting and hunting in Indianapolis-Marion County.

 

While the proposal has been altered to address some concerns of law-abiding gun owners, the proposal remains overly-broad, and ultimately, unnecessary.  By all accounts, not a single person spoke in favor of the proposed changes to the city-county ordinance, which was attended by more than 150 people. In fact, the author of the proposal, Councillor Angela Mansfield admitted, "I recognize that this does not deal with criminals who don't care about the laws. There are a lot of people in our community using bad judgment about where they shoot. This gives law enforcement another tool." However, state law already provides the tools necessary for local law enforcement officials to address reckless or negligent discharge of firearms. Simply put, Proposal 174 is not needed.

 

The Rules and Public Policy Committee decided to delay any possible action on the measure until its May 22 meeting. We will continue to work with City-County Councillors to address the concerns of law-abiding gun owners, as well as keep you informed of any new developments.

 

Please continue to contact your Councillor and urge him or her to oppose Proposal 174!  Contact information can be found by visiting http://www.indygov.org/eGov/Council/Councillors/Biography/home.htm.
