Indiana: Pro-Gun Bills Pass the Senate

Gun Rights

Yesterday, the Senate passed House Bill 1084, The Second Amendment Privacy Act, a bill to prohibit the use of firearm-related Merchant Category Codes. Additionally, the Senate passed House Bill 1235, providing protections for members of the firearms industry against frivolous lawsuits. HB 1084 will now be scheduled for a conference committee to address changes to the enforcement mechanism that were adopted in the Senate. HB 1235 will return to the House for a floor vote on concurrence. NRA-ILA will keep you informed when these important pieces of legislation are scheduled for further action.

HB 1084 prohibits the use of firearm/ammunition specific merchant category codes by payment processors. This is an important protection for gun owners, protecting private purchasing information from abuse by third parties.

HB 1235 will make Indiana law consistent with other states by prohibiting local governments from lodging frivolous lawsuits against firearm manufacturers. For years cities like Gary, Indiana have sued firearm manufacturers for the unlawful misuse of their products by criminals. In response, more than 35 states and Congress have passed laws to protect the firearm industry from these politically driven lawsuits. This bill will give firearm manufacturers in Indiana these same protections. Please contact your state Senator and tell them to support HB 1235. Again, please contact your senator and urge their support of HB 1084 and HB 1235.

NRA-ILA is actively working to pass this legislation and will keep you informed as it moves through the legislative process.
