On Monday, June 11, by a vote of 16-8, the Indianapolis Marion County City-County Council soundly defeated Proposal 174 – an ordinance that would have severely restricted the lawful discharge of firearms within the consolidated City-County.
In taking this action, the Council has clearly listened to the will of its constituents. During the public comment period on Proposal 174, not a single person spoke in support of the measure. Rather, the Council heard appeals from hundreds upon hundreds of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen, calling upon the Council to enforce existing laws instead of placing further restrictions on the residents of Indianapolis-Marion County.
We are grateful that the Council stood on the side of law-abiding citizens by rejecting this ill-advised proposal. Special thanks to all of the NRA members, hunters, sport shooters and Second Amendment supporters who worked so hard in opposition to Proposal 174!
