In a blatant attempt to violate preemption, the Indianapolis City Council has advanced an “unenforceable” gun control package. The ordinance raises the age to buy a firearm from 18 to 21, 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 gun control. The council has admitted that this proposal cannot take effect as long as preemption is still the law in Indiana.
The legislation is set to receive a vote by the City-County Council on July 10th. NRA will keep you informed about any continued efforts to restrict Second Amendment rights.
