Gun Permit Database Privacy Protection Act Becomes Law in Indiana!

Friday, March 19, 2010

On Friday, March 12, Governor Mitch Daniels (R) signed House Bill 1068, the Gun Permit Database Privacy Protection Act, into law.  No longer will newspapers and other members of the public have access to Indiana's database of state gun permit holders.

State Representative Peggy Welch (D-60) introduced HB1068 in response to the Bloomington Herald-Times' unveiling of an online gun permit database, searchable by street name.  Representative Welch testified before the Indiana General Assembly that she was prompted to introduce the bill after hearing from her constituents, gun-owning and non-gun-owning alike, who were outraged by the newspaper's abuse of such private information.

HB1068 passed with overwhelming, bi-partisan majorities in both chambers.  The Indiana House passed the measure 85-11, while the Senate passed the bill 48-0.

NRA-ILA would like to thank Representative Welch for her efforts to end this egregious abuse of power, as well as the co-sponsors of this important bill, who saw the Gun Permit Database Privacy Protection Act through to passage in both the Indiana House and Senate.

Please thank the following Indiana Representatives and Senators for their support of HB1068:
