Representative Jim Lucas, R-Seymore, has introduced a bill to reform Indiana law that restricts self defense in or near schools.

the school function; and
(3) a notice conspicuously posted at each entrance to the
property states that the property is being used by the school
for a school function.
Just suggest an “Abortion free school zone” and watch a liberal go into a spittle flying fit.
“Target Rich Zones”
Proceed with extreme prejudice.... No one will challenge you.
Just callous and inhumane.
"Gun Control" is an abomination to the Constitution and the rule of law.
