Firearm Violations

While Indiana and Ohio are generally regarded as having a minimal amount of gun control laws there are circumstances that it can be difficult to be aware of. In addition, certain municipalities, cities and counties may have additional restrictions that don’t apply state-wide (although not currently applicable in Indiana).
