Constitutional Carry Re-Introduced In Indiana as HB1022

by Dean Weingarten  |  Published on January 25, 2018

Indiana Representative Jim Lucas has re-introduced a Constitutional Carry bill in the Indiana legislature.

In 2017, Lucas lead the fight to bring Constitutional Carry to Indiana. He was heavily opposed by the Indiana Media.

He fought back by proposing a bill to require professional journalists to be fingerprinted and submit an application to the state to be approved for a journalist license, in order to exercise their freedom of the press.

It was a nice bit of satire, fighting back against an agenda driven media.
While the Constitutional Carry bill did not pass, a non-scientific poll at wane.com showed 84 percent in favor of the bill.

A legislative study committee recommended that the 2018 legislature “remove hurdles” to carrying a handgun. The vote was 15 -5 on 30 October, 2017.

The General Assembly next year is likely to consider legislation to eliminate Indiana’s licensing requirement for carrying a handgun in public.
