Indiana Gun Laws

Indiana residents will be able to keep guns in their cars at school parking lots, drink beer at the state fair and get more support from the state if they're veterans under a raft of new laws taking effect. The laws that go into effect Tuesday also include new criminal sentencing guidelines, which were corrected by lawmakers who returned this month to make the changes. Tax cuts, preschool vouchers and some of the other big legislation approved this year won't kick in for months. Republican Senate President Pro Tem David Long says the work lawmakers completed this year is emblematic of how much they pack in each year, despite their status as part-time lawmakers.
