Earlier, Representatives Ben Smaltz, Matthew Lehman, and Timothy Wesco introduced House Bill 1369, to improve the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their loved ones. It has yet to be scheduled for a hearing. Please ask your state representative to SUPPORT this critical bill that improves self-defense in Indiana.
House Bill 1369 allows any law-abiding adult who is legally eligible to obtain a carry permit, to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. It does not affect previously issued carry permits, and allows citizens who still wish to obtain a permit in order to carry in other states recognizing Indiana permits, to do so.
Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to support HB 1369.
