Today, the House Public Policy Committee voted 9-3 to advance House Bill 1077, the lawful carry bill. It will now go to the full House for further consideration. Please contact your state representative and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1077.
House Bill 1077 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.
NRA would like to thank bill sponsors Rep. Ben Smaltz and Rep. Matt Lehman, as well as Rep. Jim Lucas, for their continued efforts to advance Second Amendment rights in Indiana. Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1077.
