NRA instructs Indiana national guardsmen

When it comes to our neighbors in Indiana, Illinoisans are jealous of their low taxes and cheap smokes. Some other stuff can raise questions. Latest case in point, the Indiana National Guard, the state’s military, is now getting firearms training from the National Rifle Association, a civilian lobbying group. National Guard members typically don’t carry weapons while conducting stateside duties. But in the wake of the attacks on the military in Tennessee last month, 14 governors have opted to arm their guardsmen. Indiana is the only state out of the 14 to use the NRA for training — a move that has drawn criticism from gun control advocates and even some National Guard officials.Brian Slodysko, Indiana State Capitol Correspondent for the Associated Press, joins us to explain.
