If you are a municipal official in Indiana, state law regarding the regulation of firearms is more than likely one of the most delicate issues you face. Though litigation in Evansville v. Magenheimer is ongoing, recent court rulings have affirmed the 2011 Firearms Preemption Act will have great influence over what municipalities may and may not do in creating local firearms ordinances. Meanwhile, local pressure to regulate firearms in certain ways remains a powerful force in local governance. As a municipal official, you need to understand Indiana’s gun laws in detail if you are to navigate the various dynamics of this issue competently. Attend this webinar for a survey of Indiana’s state and local firearms laws, including information on permitting, state prohibitions of certain regulatory actions, home authority, and case law.
