Indiana Bill on Conceal Carry Permit Heads to Senate
Monday, January 17, 2022

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana House Bill 1077 would eliminate the requirement that adults apply for a permit to carry a firearm.

Although the state abolished the fee to apply for a permit, municipalities can levy taxes on permits.

The bill passed the House on a 64-29 vote. The Indiana Senate, where the same piece of legislation died during the last year’s session, can now consider the measure.

The bill would only allow lawful carry for people 18 and older. Hoosiers who want to purchase a firearm would still have to complete a form with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

If passed, Indiana would join 21 other states, including Kentucky, that allow permitless carry.

The General Assembly will take Monday off for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and resume its session Tuesday.
