Last night, the Indianapolis City-County Council passed a proposed gun control measure by a vote of 18 to 5. Rather than addressing crime and prosecuting criminals, Mayor Hogsett and the City-County Council are focused on disarming law-abiding citizens and attempting to violate preemption with a gun control package that they admit is “unenforceable.” The ordinance discriminates against young adults aged 18-20 by prohibiting them from buying firearms, ends constitutional carry, and bans many common semi-automatic firearms. In 2011, NRA worked with the General Assembly to pass a preemption law preventing localities from passing and enforcing their own gun control. The Council has admitted that this proposal cannot take effect as long as preemption is still the law in Indiana.
NRA will keep you informed about any continued efforts to restrict Second Amendment rights.
