Gov. Mike Pence signed a bill Wednesday, March 26, that allows legal gun owners to bring their firearms to school parking lots in Indiana.

However, the guns must be locked in a vehicle and hidden from sight. Students are not allowed to keep firearms in their vehicles, unless the school permits the student to do so or if the student is part of the school's shooting team.

Supporters of the bill said it protects parents who unknowingly carry firearms with them when picking their children up at school. Opponents argued that the bill makes it easier for assailants to commit gun violence in school.

The discussion spilled over onto social media when we posted the story there. Here is what some of our readers had to say about the bill.
