IN: Gun Reforms Arrive on Governor Pence's Desk
SEA 169 and SEA 229 arrived on Governor Pence's desk today, 20 March, with 192 other bills. The Governor now has seven days to sign, veto, or allow the bills to become law. If he takes the last option, the bill becomes law on the 8th day.
SEA 169 makes it a felony to knowingly provide a firearm to a felon.
SEA 229 is the culmination of the bills to eliminate the "roaming school zones" the school parking lot felony trap, and to prohibit the use of government money for gun turn in events, also known as "buy backs". While the ability of police agencies to destroy guns that are turned in to them was added at the last minute, the bill makes it easier for them to either sell the guns or convert them to money by selling them for parts and having the receivers destroyed.
