Tomorrow, January 24th, the Indiana House Public Policy Committee will hear House Bill 1424 to improve your ability to defend yourself. Sponsored by Representative Timothy Wesco (R-21), HB 1424 will allow law-abiding residents to conceal carry a firearm without first needing to obtain a concealed carry permit.
Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible to anticipate. Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend themselves in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes. The Indiana License to Carry a Handgun (LCTH) will still be available for those who wish to take advantage of reciprocity agreements when traveling to other states.
