Indiana House Passes Bill to End Handgun Permits
Wednesday, January 12, 2022

INDIANAPOLIS — Republicans in the Indiana House of Representatives have pushed through a bill that would end handgun permits in the state.

The proposal passed 63-29, despite opposition from several major law enforcement organizations, including Indiana State Police.

The bill allows anyone 18 and older to carry a handgun, except for reasons like having a felony conviction or a dangerous mental illness.

It now moves to the Senate for consideration.

A similar bill failed to pass the General Assembly last year.
