Several NRA-Backed Gun Bills Moving in the Indiana House!

Monday, April 11, 2011

Earlier today, the Indiana House of Representatives heard two important pro-gun bills on second reading.

Senate Bill 94, the “Non-Contiguous State Firearm Purchase” bill would allow Hoosiers to purchase a long gun in any state, and allow a citizen of any other state to purchase a long gun in Indiana, so long as both states allow such purchases. SB 94 brings Indiana law into line with current federal law with respect to interstate long gun purchases.  It is sponsored in the state House by state Representative Matthew Lehman (R-79) and co-sponsored by state Representative Sean Eberhart (R-57).

The “Non-Contiguous State Firearm Purchase” bill was referred to engrossment on a voice vote in second reading. The House could vote on final passage of SB 94 as early as tomorrow.

Senate Bill 506, the “Transport Permit Reform”, bill would make important reforms to Indiana’s current “transport permit” requirement. It is currently illegal to transport a handgun in your vehicle for any reason unless you are driving from the point of purchase to your home or fixed place of business, or from your home or fixed place of business to a gunsmith for repair, unless you have some form of state-issued permit. 

The “Transport Permit Reform” bill will be heard on second reading as early tomorrow.

Please contact your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to support both SB 94 and SB 506. For your state Representative’s contact information or help identifying your state Representative, please click here.

Senate Bill 292, the “Firearm Preemption Reform” bill, is scheduled to be heard in the House Public Policy Committee this Wednesday, April 13. This NRA-backed, top priority bill would mandate a strong and meaningful statewide standard for all firearm laws in Indiana, but has come under constant attack in the media and by anti-gun opponents.

Contrary to deceptive and inaccurate reports, SB 292 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); or
  • interfere with contractual agreements between private event promoters and event attendees. Private events can still regulate any items they choose (restrict backpacks, alcohol, firearms OR require the wearing of shirts, for example) at events – including conventions, the Colts, NCAA, or the Super Bowl.

Your NRA will keep you updated on the outcomes of these votes. Thank you for contacting your state legislators!
