Our Constitution and Bill of Rights detail the many freedoms and rights we have as U.S. citizens. The Second Amendment declares Americans have the right to keep and bear arms, which many Hoosiers exercise daily. To strengthen this right, I am supporting legislation, House Bill 1369, this session that would allow lawful Hoosiers to carry a handgun without having to get a government-issued permit.
This legislation would not change the requirements to purchase a handgun. Hoosier firearm buyers would still have to complete the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives form, and be approved by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
