‘Guns In Church bill Clears Senate in Indiana

New regulations that would allow Concealed Carry permit holders to take their gun into churches with schools on their grounds has passed the Senate committee.

“This bill would simply add and change the law where a person, who can regularly possess a firearm, can possess a firearm,” Sen. Jack Sandlin, R-Indianapolis, said of Senate Bill 33.

Gun Laws Are Such a Mess

The gun laws right now are confused. Under Indiana law, it is currently an offence to carry a gun into a church that has a school on the grounds. That’s a lot of them.

“This bill does not allow or put guns in the hands of teachers,” he said. “This bill would not prohibit a house of worship from establishing a policy that could prohibit the bringing of firearms onto the property.”

The Indiana Family Institute has voiced its support after last year’s church shooting and now concedes that it’s better to be prepared for the worst.

Defend Yourself, With God on Your Side

“We see this across the country with unfortunately targeting places of worship more and more for violent attacks,” he said. “This seems like a common-sense bill that would make sure that houses of worship could be protected from this kind of violence.”

The bill passed in a 5-2 vote with an amendment adding that the person with the firearm must have permission from the house of worship to carry the weapon.
