State Legislator Fights for Gun Owners in Indiana House

State Legislator Fights for Gun Owners in Indiana House

(TargetLiberty.org) – The Biden administration might be planning a crackdown on our Second Amendment rights, but they’re going to face a struggle in Indiana. The Hoosier State’s legislature is busy passing a law that expands our right to bear arms.

On February 22, the Indiana House voted 65-31 for a bill that repeals the need for a carry license in the state. Right now, Indiana residents who want to carry a handgun need to register online, give their fingerprints and have their application processed by police. According to an article from Fox News, supporters of House Bill 1369 argue that this forces citizens to pay to exercise a constitutionally-guaranteed right.

The terms of the bill would still ban certain felons from carrying handguns, but law-abiding Indiana residents would be freed from tedious bureaucracy and potentially dangerous fingerprinting and registration. Most importantly, it’s a sign that the Left isn’t going to have its own way on gun control. The bill is now heading to the Indiana Senate, where the GOP majority is likely to wave it through.
