Open firearm-bearing group expected to visit Zionsville on May 24


A group of second amendment supporters known as “Open Carry Indiana” is expected to visit Zionsville on May 24. Members of group typically show up in a town and walk around with firearms openly visible, according to the Zionsville Police Department.

“There’s not a thing we can do about it,” ZPD Chief Robert Knox said. “They’re exercising their second amendment right to bear arms and their first amendment right to peaceably get together and walk down the street like anybody else.”

The group often videotapes its events. Those in the area are urged not to call the police unless the group is trespassing or acting in a dangerous way.
