As for the impact of the reworked statute, we don’t foresee much.
Thanks to the Second Amendment, firearms and gun ownership are pervasive in American culture. Law-abiding people have a right to have guns, like it or not.
Under the revised law, gun owners must be legally able to possess a firearm. These are people who have been vetted by the Indiana State Police. While this isn’t a fail-safe against their potential criminal acts, it’s the best route we’ve got.
PUT ANOTHER WAY, the people now allowed to have guns in vehicles on school grounds are Indiana’s best and safest options as far as packing weapons.
The dangerous individuals with guns bent on chaos and carnage at a school? Sad to say, but they don’t care a whit about state law in the first place.
Our governor has endorsed a measure that’s hardly a game-changer in terms of guns and public safety. That said, the new law is reasonable enough, and provides an extra level of protection for Indiana’s responsible gun-owning and transporting populace.
Folks, just remember to keep them locked up.
