ACLU of Indiana Statement:

Our hearts are heavy this morning as another school shooting broke out here at home, at Noblesville West Middle School, Noblesville, Indiana. The students, faculty and families are in our thoughts.

The systems designed to protect our children continue to fail. While the Second Amendment confers a right to bear arms, the Constitution does not prevent lawmakers from adopting effective measures to restrain gun violence. There must be a strong balance in protecting civil liberties and promoting public safety regarding gun control measures. Now is the time for action.
