Indiana Bill HB 1284 Wants to Expand Stand Your Ground Law

 In 2nd Amendment

Indiana Bill HB 1284 is one of those 2nd Amendment bills that might make liberals fly off the handle: it grants CIVIL immunity from lawsuits for anyone who legally shoots someone in the defense of themselves or others. No civil lawsuits allowed in a justified shooting.

Previously the law only provided immunity from criminal prosecution. Now this new bill would expand protections to include civil lawsuits. It actually bans anyone from filing a lawsuit in justifiable cases.

That’s not all this new bill will change, but it does have some important issues for legal gun owners.

The Daily Caller reported,

The measure passed Monday 64-17 in the House and 37-7 in the Senate and now goes to Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb for signature. It includes other gunregulation changes, one of which may allow guns in churches located on school property. The potential law enables the property owner on which the churches are located to govern the gun policy. The final part of H.B. 1284 waives a fee for five-year state handgun licenses.

The bill allows the property owner of churches that meet in schools to decide whether anyone in the churches can be armed or not. Of course, that opens up the complete liberal meltdown over a church meeting in a school in the first place.

One Democrat, Indiana State Senator Greg Taylor, doesn’t think that having armed church members is a good idea.

“I can’t believe we’re going to have people sitting in church with firearms expecting to defend the entire church.” Greg Taylor to WFYI

And no one thinks that Senator, but Democrats have to have their anti-2A statement. Both schools and churches are “soft targets,” and at this point in time if at least a few of their parishioners are not armed, they are sitting ducks.

The bill also removes the fee for Indiana handgun licenses.

    AS IT SHOULD BE!
    ANY PERSON ,WHO IS FOUND LEGALLY JUSTIFIED IN PROTECTING THEIR LIVES ,CAN BE SUED BY THE PERPETRATORS OF THE CRIME,ARE YOU SERIOUS,
    WHAT PLANET ARE THE JUDGES AND PROSECUTORS FROM THAT WOULD EVEN ALLOW SUCH A FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT ,AND NOT TO MENTION THE STUPID AMOUNTS OF MONEY BEING SPENT ON THIS TYPE OF UNREASONABLE AND UNJUSTIFIABLE MUCK-DRAGGING OF THE VICTIMS, THAT WERE PROTECTING THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES,
    SO, IF THE PERPETRATORS CAN’T GET IT BY STICKING YOU UP, AND WAS NOT ABLE TO STEAL YOUR MONEY ON THE STREET ,HE IS STILL ABLE TO STEAL IT IN COURT
    SOMETHING SEEMS TO BE A LITTLE TWISTED WITH THAT THOUGHT PATTERN !!
