INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana is moving one step closer to passing a Lawful Carry gun bill. House Bill 1369 would allow any person who is able to lawfully carry and possess a firearm to do so without a government issued permit or license.
The bill repeals the law that requires a person to obtain a license to carry a handgun in Indiana.
Supporters say requiring gun permits undermines Second Amendment protections and argue violent criminals don't obey the law.
Curreently, Indiana is a "shall issue" state for the license to carry a handgun.
House Bill 1369 passed the House 65 to 31 and now heads to the Senate.
