What’s New in the Indiana Firearms Arena

New Indiana Laws Relating to Firearms and School Safety and a Resolution Welcoming Gun Manufactures to Indiana

A key part of staying in compliance with the law to changing the law is understanding it.  This is the focus of this blog post, “What is new in the firearms arena?”

With the 2013 Indiana General Assembly coming close, there are three new pieces of legislation that passed and were sent to the Governor for signature (and signed).  They do not directly expand or limit gun rights.  The first is Senate Bill 1. This extensive piece of legislation addresses school safety, and covers extensive provisions for a school resource officer and implementation of comprehensive school safety plan, whereby the state provides matching funds for this purpose.

Ultimately, this provides more funding than presently available for school safety and incorporates the safety plan with law enforcement.  Thus, our General Assembly and Executive Branch, and ultimately as the law is passed upon by the courts, demonstrates an exceptional commitment for our schools and protection of our future, by and through the safety of our school children.

House Bill 1563 tightens up and clarifies hunting with silencers and addresses switchblades. In addition, it clarifies the shooting range protection act.

House Bill 1006 completely rewrites the criminal code and takes effect in 2014.  In doing so, it changes the way felonies are stated and well known to Hoosiers, a Class D felony, being the lowest, through the highest felony, a Class A felony.  This will be replaced by levels 1 through 6 of felonies.

Finally the Senate passed a resolution welcoming gun manufacturers to Indiana. Indiana has a long history in firearms testing and manufacture, including the Crane Naval Warfare Center located in Crane, Indiana.  And this is good business for Indiana.
