Important Gun Bills on the Move in the Indiana Senate!

Friday, February 19, 2010

Please Contact Your State Senator!

On Thursday, February 18, House Bill 1065 successfully passed second reading and will now head to the Senate floor for third and final reading early next week! The Senate also passed House Bill 1068 on third reading by a unanimous vote (48 to 0) and will now head back to the House for concurrence.

HB 1065, would prevent state or local government authorities from confiscating lawfully owned firearms during declared states of emergency, such as occurred in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Moreover, this bill would also prohibit employers from firing employees who safely and lawfully store their firearms in their privately-owned locked vehicles while on an employer’s property.  HB 1065 was authored by State Representative Bob Bischoff (D-68) and sponsored by State Senators Johnny Nugent (R-43) and Brent Steele (R-44).

The Senate also voted to block attempts by big businesses to water-down HB 1065 which would have created large loopholes that would allow businesses to exempt themselves from the Parking Lot legislation.

Please contact State Senate President David Long (R-16) and thank him for his leadership and efforts in defeating the exemption amendments. Contact information can be found here. Also please contact your State Senator and politely encourage them to support HB 1065 when it comes up for third reading.   Your State Senator’s contact information can be found here.

HB 1068, sponsored by State Representative Peggy Welch (D-60) and State Senator Greg Walker (R-41), would limit access to the Indiana Right-to-Carry permit list in order to protect the privacy of law-abiding citizens.  If passed, this legislation would make Right-to-Carry permit information confidential and would prohibit the publication of that information. 

Please contact your State Senator today and thank them for their support of HB 1068. Your State Senator’s contact information can be found here.
