Today, all four conferees signed the Conference Committee Report for House Bill 1296, which contains the constitutional carry language from House Bill 1077. Then, both chambers voted to adopt the report. As such, it has now passed the General Assembly and will soon head to Governor Eric Holcomb’s desk for his consideration. Please contact Gov. Holcomb and ask him to sign House Bill 1296 into law.
Constitutional carry 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 Gov. Holcomb and ask him to sign House Bill 1296 into law.
