    Local, Indianapolis City County Council is looking at encouraging Indiana to support a ban on "assault" weapons and "high capacity" magazines. See email below sent to me by a councilman/friend. Please try to make it and let the councilman who wrote this email know how you feel:

    is anticipated that the following items may be considered by the committee.

    It's been about four years since I've done any legislative work, but I don't think it takes a genius to determine this one is DOA.

    But, it is some good virtue signaling, pandering to the base.

    I am sooooo glad to be out of Marion County, where my tax $$ no longer help subsidize this kind of silliness, instead of, say, fixing sewers or paving roads. But fixing sewers and roads isn't as cool.

    Same here. Hopefully it is DOA as mentioned but it doesn't hurt to let these people know their ideas are not well-received.

    Interesting. I wonder if Councilman Mascari uses firearms to protect the jewelry store he owns in Beech Grove, Spalding Jewelers?
    Usualy the left ruling class always thinks they should have rights but the subjects, the people shouldnt.

    I'm sick and tired of these traitors thinking they can dictate what my rights are or take them away. They cannot.

    Hold up.

    Its important to understand what they're going to do.

    They can't actually regulate those things because pre-emption.

    What they can do is "officially" "ask" the General Assembly to let them regulate it. And there will be debate and handwringing about the resolution doing the "official" "asking."

    But, there's really nothing substantive they can do on the matter.

    I am tracking, and I hope everyone else is, too. This kind of "request," if passed by the City-County Council, will fall on deaf ears at the legislature; that is what I meant by "DOA."

    It is still wasteful of the taxpayers' money and precious legislative time at the local and state levels to engage in this kind of hand wringing.

    I question how "precious" the City County Council time is. Part of me thinks this rabbit hole will keep them from other distractions that could actually impinge on rights.

    Mr. Mascari:


    Good luck with this proposal 112. The Indiana preemption law will render it meaningless even if you clowns do pass it.


    Is it not bad enough that you waste taxpayer resources on matters such as the Red Line? Must you go further wasting taxpayer resources with grandstanding such as this?
