Indianapolis City Council Attempts to Enact Gun Control
URGENT ALERT – CALL TO ACTION
From NRA-ILA: What is a usually quiet time in the State with regard to public policy, as the legislature has adjourned until next year, has turned into a perilous summer for our Constitutional Rights and safety of Hoosiers. The Mayor of Indianapolis, Joe Hogsett, and City Council Members are showing a total and reckless disregard for the US Constitution and State Law in order to create a smokescreen for their public safety incompetencies that have created the violent mayhem in Indianapolis.
With a Procecutor that turns violent criminals back out on the street, a Mayor who brushes off riots in the streets as merely “a reckoning” and after Indianapolis businesses leave downtown after years of unanswered pleas to enforce our existing laws and clean up the streets, the Mayor has put forth a toothless, unenforceable, and unconstitutional proposal to cover up his failures before the upcoming election this fall.
They have proposed a “ smokescreen” ordinance, which unanimously passed the City Council Public Safety Committee and will receive a vote by the entire City Council on July 10th.
CALL YOUR CITY COUNCELLOR NOW AND BE SURE THAT YOU ARE REGISTERED TO VOTE IN THE FALL ELECTIONS…IT IS TIME TO SAVE THE CITY!!!!
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.
It is interesting to note that proponents for the ordinance continue their spectacularly insincere diatribe of spewing that their efforts are not an attempt to limit the rights of law-abiding gun owners and that they are not against you or your guns……I call their callous attempts to placate law-abiding Hoosiers B.S.
Note: Although this is an Indianapolis City Ordinance, EVERYONE should call their city and county leaders to make sure that this BS does not happen in their City. We have seen anti 2A letters and proposals come out of Fort Wayne (Mayor Henry) and Carmel (Mayor Brainard and some City Council members). and we need to nip this issue off at the bud!
