- Bill: HB 1048 - Increase Parental Responsibility for Firearm Storage
- Position: Oppose
- Author: Rep. Jackson (D-1)
UPDATE: Victory for the Second Amendment! HB 1048 failed in committee!
HB 1048 would punish child care providers as well as parents for the storage of a firearm in a manner that causes a likelihood that a child could obtain the firearm. If caught improperly storing the firearm twice then the individual would be charged with a class 6 felony and be prohibited from owning or possessing any firearms For LIFE.
This is one of the dozens highly similar bills coming across state legislatures that aim at ending an already nearly non-existent problem by punishing gun owners for incidents that have not yet occurred. The law will also be to put gun owners in more danger as it will increase the time required to arm themselves during life threatening situations.
Tell the Indiana state Reps. to keep their laws away from your guns!
