I like the hot link to the reps.HB 1282: How about NO!!
Citizen's arrests. Specifies that a person may perform a citizen's arrest only if: (1) the arrest is justified under the self-defense statute; (2) the arrest is justified under the shoplifter or unlawful recording detention statutes; or (3) the arrest is based on a criminal offense committed on private property in the presence of the arresting person, if the arresting person has a contractual interest in the property or is an employee of an establishment located on the property. Makes conforming amendments.
That already is in the IC, but it was neutered by the IN supreme court. Will this negate that?SB199: Support. Senator Michael Young. Eliminates pointing a loaded firearm = deadly force/only lawful if deadly force is authorized.
Self-defense. Specifies that "reasonable force" includes the pointing of a loaded or unloaded firearm for purposes of self-defense and arrest statutes.
Adds: As used in this section, "reasonable force" includes the pointing of a loaded or unloaded firearm to two sections of self-defense statutes.
To my knowledge the "pointing loaded firearm = deadly force" was driven by a court case. Guy has mentioned it before, the details escape me right now. LEOs are exempt from this.That already is in the IC, but it was neutered by the IN supreme court. Will this negate that?
I am at work, so have not read the full bill, but from the synopsis, this one seems to open up the fairgrounds during the fair, and open the capitol and govt complex all the time, to the citizens who obey laws. Still doesn’t address schools, but this seems to be pretty huge.HB 1295: Elimination of Gun Free Zones. Not the ones you thought of when you read the previous sentence. This deals with the Indiana State Fair Commission and their anti-2A antics.
Yes, which is why I said the IN supreme court neutered it. They ruled that pointing a firearm is deadly force, which the IC states that it is reasonable force.To my knowledge the "pointing loaded firearm = deadly force" was driven by a court case.

Thanks Bill, just following in your footsteps on this.Hey great Job Kelly!!!. Sorry life has me in the spin cycle a while now.
I have a feeling w the authors on the list including the committee chair and Guy (and the 2A Project / NRA supporting it) 1369 is gonna be the 1 to move forward.
Hope to make a hearing and see you there.
I have not had time to digest all the others yet.
ETA ... i like that overall the carry bills have about 15 or 20 sponsors!!! (At least in the house)
From my experience in my former home in Illinois it depends some are too full of themselves and all knowing they can't find time. Others will be more than happy to meet with you, those are the ones to elect. Jim.How hard is it to speak to a legislator here? Can I go to the chamber and request them? I know in other states they'll have the doorman deliver a note for you and you can get them out.
A couple different questions here HK. Speaking at a committee hearing? Easier than you think. Well this year is confusing with the COVID madness (committee in room 202, testify in room 404 type stuff, normally you're in the same room.) Sign up (after 0700 on the online, if it's working) or sign up at the hearing/testimony room.Thanks for the updates. I spent some time browsing the legis website yesterday to read them. I'm very interested in going down to the capitol to check this out when CC advances. How hard is it to speak during a subcommittee here? Not used to Indiana legis rules yet?
