INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A bill to permit guns in school parking lots in Indiana is attracting national attention.
Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, testified against it at the Statehouse Monday morning.
She objects to a provision that allows a person with a gun permit to keep a gun in the glove compartment or trunk of a vehicle when visiting a school.
“The lesson that should have been learned from the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012 is that easy and unregulated access to guns must be limited, not encouraged. Yet these amendments would do the exact opposite,” she said.
The conference committee considering the gun bill recessed without reaching a consensus.
