Should a parent be charged with a felony if they have a gun in their car while picking up their child?
That is the issues that an Indiana legislative committee is trying to address.
That committee has endorsed a proposal that would allow guns in school parking lots.
The House Public Policy Committee has added that provision to a bill that would prohibit local governments from using taxpayer money for gun buy-back programs.
Under the proposal if the gun is locked and out of sight in a car in a school parking lot it would be permissible.
Currently, bringing a gun on school property is a felony.
The bill now goes to the full House.
