So you don't like the fussy city laws about shooting guns in the air, so you move to the country, where you can fire off as many rounds as you want to. But, guess what? When the city moves its lines, it wants to bring all the rules with it:
Indianapolis - A city county councilor wants to expand the city's gun law. She says it's about keeping residents safe, but opponents see it as an infringement on rights.
Under the proposed changes, people could still shoot at authorized firing ranges and they could still shoot in self-defense.
What they couldn't do is shoot guns into the air, as some do New Year's Eve, or hunt or target practice in areas close to neighborhoods.
It's a law already on the books for the old city limits, that Democratic Councilor Angela Mansfield wants expanded countywide, to cover areas now well-developed like hers.
This is a lot more reasonable than a lot of gun-control efforts. I don't want people I don't even trust with fireworks getting drunk and unleashing a barrage of small-arms fire. As a gun-store owner in the story says, the guns today are a lot more powerful, and what goes up must come down.
