SB0304, "Firearms Safety Courses"
Update: The text is up and it's a bad one (see Nathan's blog post) and idiotic. Before you can buy or even rent a gun, you must pass a "Firearms Safety Course:"
b) Firearms safety courses conducted by the state police department under section 1(a) of this chapter:It's free, all you have to do is show up and it doesn't require any skill or knowledge testing? So, ummm, what's the point? Oh, yeah, to make it more of a PITA to exercise a Constitutionally-protected right, while requiring the State Police to devote their scare resources to the program, which won't make them any more fond of gun-owners. Got it.
(1) must be offered to persons free of charge; (2) may not be more than two (2) hours in duration; (3) must be conducted or offered at least one (1) time each week in all geographic areas of Indiana; (4) must be conducted after regular business hours; (5) must require a person to attend only for the duration of the course to complete the course successfully; and (6) may not require any skills or knowledge testing in the use of a firearm in order to complete the course successfully.
