An Indiana legislative committee has endorsed a proposal that would allow the possession of concealed guns in school parking lots.
State Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, authored the legislation, which has found a new home in a Senate bill. His original House bill failed to clear that chamber.
The provision, which would allow guns to be locked and out of sight inside a vehicle in a school parking lot, was added to Senate Bill 229. The bill also would prohibit local governments from conducting firearm buyback programs with public money.
