I’ve been saying this here for a LONG time….
Gun Control is a dead issue for Democrats nationally….
America has a gun culture….
Mass shootings , with media coverage is NOT gonna stop the march by Americans to obtain and carry MORE guns…
Protests about theis movement across the states by law enforcement has fallen on deaf ears by lawmakers…
Gov. Eric Holcomb signed a bill into law Monday that eliminates the license requirement to carry a handgun in Indiana, despite initial opposition from the Holcomb-appointed head of state police due to safety concerns.
Starting in July, anyone who legally could carry a handgun with a permit previously now could do so without one moving forward, due to House Bill 1296. That means most Hoosiers 18 years and older can carry a handgun in public without ever having received a background check, unless they had done so to purchase a handgun.
Permits still will be available to those who want one, such as those traveling to another state that has reciprocity with Indiana.
“HEA 1296, which I’ve signed today, entrusts Hoosiers who can lawfully carry a handgun to responsibly do so within our state,” Holcomb said in a statement. “It’s important to note that if a person is prohibited, under federal or state laws, from possessing a firearm before this law goes into effect, that person will still be prohibited. And if a prohibited person has a firearm, he or she can be prosecuted.”
