    I just sent this to Jim Lucas.

    Sir,


    Thank you for your efforts for gun rights in Indiana. I hope that with letters we can get the Const. Carry bill to a vote and hopefully it will pass this year.


    The thing I would like the Legislature to do is revise (IC 35-47-2-11 wrong cite) IC 35-47-11.1 to give the State Legislature Preeminence in 2A issues. As the law now stands it does not prohibit Stare agencies from banning firearms with their Administrative code.


    Case in point, The IDNR has banned both concealed and open carry of firearms on their ranges. Now licensed carriers have to disarm and re arm in parking lots where there is no safe direction to do so. A negligent discharge could be catastrophic, causing injury or death. This could open not only the carrier but the state to lawsuits. The safest place for a firearm is the holster.


    I and many that I know have stopped using DNR ranges. Indiana Gun Owners has, for the last 5 years, helped sponsor a Family Range Day at Winamac. This year there are only a handful of volunteers to continue this effort. The reason is the new Administrative rules. https://www.ingunowners.com/forums/i...ml#post7376062


    Please consider this for future legislation.


    Again Thank You, Tom


    Edit: The IC I quoted was incorrect it should be IC 35-47-11.1

    Well if this falls apart I will donate the 100 to a place that focuses on youth training.

    I must have missed something. I gather from the posts that I can't have my EDC on my hip, but I can walk around with it in a soft, zippered gun case while I'm at a DNR gun range? I don't get it, but I'll still pitch in at the family shoot. Shouldn't let a little horse-hooey get in the way of a good event.

    We have 9 CONFIRMED as of right now with 2 maybes.
    We lost 2 from last year due to the new rules.
    We need a MINIMUM of 15 in order to do the event.
    At that 15 is just the instructors and ROs. It does not count any backup instructors to allow those on the line some time off, cooks, photographers, ammo/water runners, safety table. Ideally we need 23+ members.

    I have updated post 5 with the names
