Although it won’t take one gun off the street, the Indianapolis City-County Council passed its version of gun control by a vote of 18-5.
The measure would eliminate permitless carry, assault-style weapons and raise the age to purchase a weapon.
City Councilor Ali Brown said she was fed up with stories regarding mass shootings. While Minority Leader Brian Mowery said, he had an opinion from the Attorney General’s office saying the city was not allowed to regulate firearms under state law.

The legislation would only be able to go into effect if Indiana changed state law.
Earlier, the Council unanimously passed funding to hire three new attorneys to work with U.S. Attorney’s office on gun crimes.
