SEA 169 and SEA 229 arrived on Governor Pence's desk today, 20 March, with 192 other bills. The Governor now has seven days to sign, veto, or allow the bills to become law. If he takes the last option, the bill becomes law on the 8th day.
SEA 169 makes it a felony to knowingly provide a firearm to a felon.
SEA 229 is the culmination of the bills to eliminate the "roaming school zones" the school parking lot felony trap, and to prohibit the use of government money for gun turn in events, also known as "buy backs". While the ability of police agencies to destroy guns that are turned in to them was added at the last minute, the bill makes it easier for them to either sell the guns or convert them to money by selling them for parts and having the receivers destroyed.

Pence is reported to be a second amendment supporter. It is widely believed that he will sign the two bills.

When I see “gun reform” in a headline, I don’t expect to see actual reform.
Sounds very good.

Pence is the real deal.
And GOD, how the progs in Washington hated him!

(Well, it is what the Sheeple voted for....)
Gov. Pence was tea party before there was a tea party. As a congressional representative from Indiana, he was among the most conservative congressmen in the country. I'd be surprised if he didn't sign, and can't fathom that he would ever veto these, even with the state's left-wing school admins lobbying against it.
Pence is solid, and Indiana is set to soar because of him.

(Chris Christie can STILL go straight to hell.)
Just for the sake of discussion, is a law such as SEA 169 even necessary?
I am all for less unnecessary laws..... and, believe me, we have PLENTY of those here in Texas.

I do not think so. I think it is an example of “horsetrading”.
