Gov. Eric Holcomb signed H.B. 1296 into law on Monday. Known as “constitutional carry” or “permitless carry,” it’s a change to Indiana law some Republican legislators have been working on for years.
The proposal would allow anyone age 18 or older to carry a handgun in public except for reasons such as having a felony conviction or a dangerous mental illness.
I am honestly quite surprised that the normally useless Holcomb would actually sign this bill.
However there are still plenty of ominous portents and dark clouds on the horizon. More tomorrow on that, for tonight I will celebrate that the government no longer is requiring a permit to exercise a right that never should have required a permit to begin with.
