Indiana May “Open” For Gun Business: Welcome to Your New Home?

Since the Sandy Hook school shootings, an intense local, state and national debate has focused on pro- versus anti-gun legislation. While no national legislation has yet to pass and be signed into law, and seems unlikely, states have already adopted ordinances and laws that frame many dimensions of this debate. One local government has passed an ordinance to require gun ownership for every household and some states have passed various magazine bans.

And a few governments have gone in other directions in unique ways. Indiana is such a state. On Tuesday, April 2, 2013, Senate Resolution 611 passed through the Rules committee of the Indiana Senate 11-0. This resolution sets out Indiana’s pro-gun stance, adherence to gun rights and invites “vendors and businesses that deal in manufacture [of] small arms” to bring their business operations to the State, with a full breath of Indiana government directed to aid.

This Resolution is likely to pass and be backed by the Governor. This is another dimension of the gun debate to consider in your analysis of gun legislation and policy. Small arms manufacturing, distribution and sales is a multi-billion dollar industry and Indiana appears poised to officially embrace this and bring jobs and a new tax base to the State.
