Proposal No. 112, 2018 was defeated yesterday in a hearing held by the Community Affairs Committee of the City-County Council of Marion County and Indianapolis. Your NRA would like to thank the NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who took the time to contact committee members and attend the hearing to oppose this resolution.
Proposal No. 112, 2018 would have called for the Indiana General Assembly to enact legislation to ban commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms based on cosmetic features as well as magazines with a capacity greater than 10 rounds of ammunition. This resolution attempted to brand these firearms as “assault weapons” to drum up unnecessary fear of their ownership. In reality, these firearms were only being defined by aesthetic features that in no way affect the functionality of the firearm. Semi-automatic firearms only fire one shot per action of the trigger, and such technology along with magazines greater than 10 rounds in capacity have been available to American consumers for more than a century. Semi-automatic firearms and standard capacity magazines are commonly owned by law-abiding citizens for various purposes such as self-defense, recreation, competition, and hunting.
