Indiana House GOP Wants to Study Ending Handgun Licenses

Handgun License

Gun rights supporters want to study the possibility of repealing an Indiana law requiring people to get a license before carrying a handgun.

An Indiana House committee voted Tuesday to create a special summer committee to study the issue.

Indiana law currently prohibits those with felony or domestic violence convictions from obtaining a handgun license.

Representative Jim Lucas of Seymour sponsored a bill to eliminate the requirement, but it didn’t get traction.

Now he is pushing the study committee.
