INDIANAPOLIS- The Indiana House of Representatives approved legislation Monday that would allow guns in school parking lots.
In the 74-24 vote, the House says parents, teachers and other adults should be allowed to carry firearms in their vehicles on school property.

Restrictions in the bill would limit the transportation of guns onto school grounds to glove compartments, trunks or elsewhere out of sight.
Students who participate in shooting clubs or similar organizations will be allowed to bring guns to school grounds with the school's permission.
Indiana law would still prohibit guns from being brought into school buildings. As of now, it is a felony to do so.
The bill now heads back to the State Senate for that chamber's final vote.
