Indiana Committee Will Explore Permitless Carry

An Indiana legislative committee starts this morning exploring the possibility of a permitless carry measure in the state legislature next session.

According to a report from NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, the Indiana Joint Committee on Judiciary and Public Policy will begin a summer study on the matter today. 

Permitless carry—also called constitutional carry—would eliminate the requirement for law-abiding adults to obtain a permit in order to lawfully carry, and would make the current permitting system optional, which will still allow citizens to obtain permits to take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states. Twelve states currently have no permitting requirement for law-abiding citizens to carry concealed firearms for self-defense, with more being added every year.
