Indiana: Legislature Adjourns Sine Die

On Wednesday, March 14th, the Indiana Legislature adjourned sine die from its 2018 Legislative Session.

Thanks to the active involvement of members and Second Amendment supporters, anti-gun legislation stalled and failed to pass this session.  House Bill 1292, to improve hunting opportunities, passed both chambers and now awaits Governor Eric Holcomb's signature.

House Bill 1292, authored by Representative Sean Eberhart (R-57), will ensure that rifle hunting with pistol caliber cartridges is protected throughout Indiana.  This bill safeguards previously established hunting opportunities that many Hoosiers have enjoyed during past hunting seasons.  These expanded opportunities will enhance hunter retention and recruitment efforts across the state.

Thank you again to those NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their legislators this session, and also to all of the legislators that stood strong on protecting Second Amendment rights in Indiana.  Your NRA-ILA will be back at the Capitol for the 2019 session, and in the meantime, please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates.
