Indiana: Two NRA-Backed Bills Go to the state House floor and Another Priority Bill is Scheduled for a Committee Hearing on April 6

Friday, April 1, 2011

The NRA is pleased to report a week of productive committee hearings for Hoosier gun owners!

 

Yesterday, March 31, the House Committee on Employment, Labor and Pensions passed Senate Bill 411, the “Parking Lot 2.0” bill, by an overwhelming, bi-partisan 11 to 1 vote. 

 

Today, April 1, the House Public Policy Committee passed Senate Bill 506, Indiana’s “Firearm Transport Permit Reform” bill by a 9 to 1 vote. 

 

These bills now head to the full House for a second reading vote, and could be eligible for the House calendar as early as Monday, April 4.

 

Please contact your state Representative TODAY and respectfully ask him or her to support both SB 411 and SB 506!

 

Additionally, next Wednesday, April 6, the House Public Policy Committee will hear the “Firearm Preemption” bill, another one of the NRA’s top legislative priorities this session.  Please contact members of the House Public Policy Committee listed at the bottom of this alert and respectfully urge them to support Senate Bill 292, Indiana’s “Firearm Preemption” bill.

 

SB 292 would mandate a strong and meaningful statewide standard for all firearm laws in Indiana, instead of the current patchwork of various firearm regulations that differ from one municipal or county boundary to the next.

 

Contrary to deceptive and inaccurate media reports, the Firearms Preemption bill does NOT:

 

  • change current state code outlawing the negligent, reckless or careless use and discharge of firearms – or the criminal charges for such offenses (IC 35-42-2-2),
  • affect current state bans on K-12 or public college campuses (IC 35-47-9),
  • impinge upon the contractual agreement between a private event promoter and the attendee of the event. Private event promoters could still restrict any items they choose (backpacks, alcohol or red t-shirts, for example) at their private or ticketed events – including the Colts, Pacers, or the 2012 Super Bowl.

  

The NRA will continue to keep you updated on these and other bills throughout the remainder of the 2011 legislative session.

 

Thank you for contacting your elected officials on behalf of firearm-related legislation. Your e-mails and phone calls really DO make a difference!
