Indiana to Benefit from Five New Pro-Gun Laws on July 1, 2011!

Thursday, May 12, 2011

In one of the most successful pro-gun legislative sessions in the Hoosier State’s recent history, the Indiana General Assembly passed and Governor Mitch Daniels signed into law five new NRA-supported firearm bills!

As of July 1, Hoosiers will:

  • Be protected from employer anti-gun workplace discrimination;
  • Have the ability to purchase a long gun in any state that allows such sales;
  • Transport a firearm to a shooting range without a state-issued permit;
  • Know that wherever they travel throughout Indiana, the same firearm laws and freedoms apply evenly across local boundaries; and 
  • Carry a loaded firearm on their person on off-road vehicles on private property.

Senate Enrolled Act 506, the “Transport Permit Reform” bill, passed in the Senate by a 43 to 7 vote and in the House by an 84 to 13 vote. SEA 506 was authored by state Senator Jim Tomes (R-49) and sponsored in the House by Representative Heath VanNatter (R-38). This bill was signed into law by Governor Daniels on May 10.

On April 20, Governor Daniels signed into law Senate Enrolled Act 154, which allows loaded firearms on off-road vehicles on private property if the person carrying the firearm owns or has permission to be on the property.  Authored in the Senate by state Senator Brent Steele (R-44) and sponsored in the House by Representative Sean Eberhart (R-57), this bill passed in the Senate by a 45 to1 vote and in the House by an 83 to 6 vote.

NRA member’s communications to their state legislators can have a big impact on how they vote on firearm-related legislation, both now and in the future. It is just as important to thank your legislators after they support the Second Amendment as it is to ask for their vote.   Please thank Governor Daniels, Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-16), House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-88) and the authors and sponsors of these gun bills for supporting your Second Amendment rights!

All five firearm laws go into effect July 1, 2011.
