A bill that would legalize short barreled shotguns in the state of Indiana has been passed by the state senate.

Senate Bill 433, authored by Sen. James Tomes, Sen. Brent Waltz and Sen. Brent Steele, now moves on to the House for a vote.

If approved, all short barreled shotguns would still fall under NFA regulation and would require a tax stamp to own.

According to the NRA-ILA:

SB 433, sponsored by state Senator Jim Tomes (R-49), would repeal the section of the Indiana statute that prohibits the possession, sale, receipt, or use of short barreled shotguns.  These firearms are legal under federal law and regulated by the National Firearms Act of 1934.  SB 433 would bring Indiana in line with federal law.
