Just say no to…

Dating. And S.B. 292. What do they have in common? They both loosen the guns. There are currently four gun bills making their way through the Indiana House, and Senate Bill 292 (S.B. 292) is one of them. The bill proposes a general gun law for the state of Indiana, prohibiting any local government from regulating possession of firearms. What this bill fails to recognize is that every town has their own dilemma concerning guns; passing this bill would leave certain towns powerless to protect their populace and punish gun-related crimes.

Criminals take advantage of people’s decency, knowing that good people will obey the law. They cannot be negotiated with, not even by law-abiding gun owners. Although many of us are not citizens of Indiana, this bill, if passed, puts us in the crosshairs. If you want to take a stand and keep South Bend gun-free, visit saynoto292.com or stop by South Dining Hall on April 28th from 6-8 p.m. to sign postcards to send to our state governor.
