Police voice concerns over Indiana's new gun law


Perhaps they'd rather you carry a cop, instead?
Or rely on gov't dial-a-prayer? Some folks would like that.


INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana's new handgun law goes into effect next week. It allows people to carry a handgun without a license under the following conditions:

- if they are on their own property
- it it's unloaded in their vehicle
- if a handgun is carried to a shooting range for an instructional course or during legal hunting
- or if the handgun is unloaded and securely wrapped.

But police have expressed concerns about the new law to Eyewitness News.

Whenever a law enforcement officer pulls someone over, they know there's a risk that someone inside the vehicle may be armed and dangerous.

Now, starting July 1st, a new gun law will allow people to carry guns inside their vehicles without a license.

"If the person just bought the weapon, they have it in a secured wrapper, it's unloaded; it's in the trunk but not in the passenger compartment - it's not an issue. There's no threat to the officer," said Sgt. Dave Bursten, Indiana State Police.

I wish cops would work just 1/2 as hard keeping guns out of the hands of criminals as they do the law abiding citizen.

An armed and dangerous populace is a good thing. Everyone is an a level playing field and there is LESS violence all the way around.

Are they throwing the lower level minions under the bus already? Cops should wake up to the fact that their jobs are temporary and they will be replaced as the US takeover continues.
