BREAKING: Indiana Passes Constitutional Carry, Awaiting Governor Approval


Indiana is one step closer to passing constitutional carry.

Lawmakers in the state have approved legislation in both the state Senate and House.

That legislation now sits at the desk of Indiana governor Eric Holcomb, where it awaits his approval.

The bill would allow anyone who legally owns a handgun to carry it without a permit.

Currently, 21 states have constitutional carry.

Ohio is also awaiting approval from governor Mike DeWine.

Meanwhile, legislation is currently going through the Alabama and Georgia legislatures as well.

The Blaze has more on this big victory for gun owners:

Indiana lawmakers on Tuesday approved a constitutional carry bill that would allow adult residents in the state to carry a handgun without needing a license to do so.

The legislation was passed 30-20 in the state Senate and 68-30 earlier in the state House, with Republicans holding majorities in both bodies. It now heads to Gov. Eric Holcomb’s desk for either his signature or veto. If the governor does not sign the bill within seven days, it will automatically become law.

Conservative groups support the bill, which would allow anyone who can legally carry a handgun to do so without a permit moving forward. The National Rifle Association urged supporters to contact Holcomb and ask him to sign the legislation, saying the bill “ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays.”

Our friends at Breitbart have more details on the 21 other constitutional carry states:

There are currently 21 constitutional carry states in the Union. Those states are Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Moreover, constitutional carry has reached Gov. Mike DeWine’s (R) desk in Ohio and is moving through the Alabama and Georgia legislatures at a rapid pace.

Aside from Indiana, Ohio is also one step closer to passing constitutional carry.

It currently awaits approval from Gov. Mike DeWine.
