Gov. Pence Signs Bill Allowing Guns in Indiana School Parking Lots

Gov. Pence Signs Bill Allowing Guns in Indiana School Parking Lots

On March 26th Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) signed legislation into law allowing “teachers, parents, and school visitors to have guns concealed and locked in their cars in school parking lots.”

According to IndyStar.com, “current law can make it felony for legal gun-permit holders to even inadvertently have their guns in their vehicles while they drop off their children at school.” The bill Pence signed will change that.

Pence spokeswoman Kara Brooks said: 

Governor Pence believes in the right to keep and bear arms, and that this is a common sense reform of the law that accomplishes the goal of keeping parents and law-abiding citizens from being charged with a felony when they pick their kids up at school or go to cheer on the local basketball team.

As Breitbart News reported on March 22nd, some Indiana school officials opposed the measure and hoped Pence would not sign it. Indianapolis Public Schools superintendent Lewis Ferebee said, “Young people, schools, guns and all of that is a mix for something inappropriate.”
