Well, ill try to get to the next ocdo meeting at cabellas. Indiana is coming close to being the perfect gun state. With some of the laws in congress right now that are infavor of gun rights(the ammo law has no chance in hell), it wont be to long before we have state wide open carry spelled out in law.
Mordis, respectfully, why do we need a law ALLOWING us to do what is already a God given right? If there is no law against
it, why do we need a law for
it? Enacting laws to ALLOW citizens to do things that we already have rights to do (as enumerate in the Constitution and BOR) is part of the problem in THESE United States.
At one time, we the people, limited government on what it was to engage in on our behalf. Now, it is the other way around? Sadly, we have come to accept this.
While Indiana does have some decent firearms laws, it has a long way to go before being 'perfect'. We cannot carry in any form in Schools, Churches (must get permission), the statehouse, etc. The Statehouse issue is being addressed with legislators by 2nd Amendment Patriots. Those are the chaps that pressed the Lifetime LTCH issue home. We owe them a great thanks.
WE also don't have the best of reciprocity with other states, such as Ohio, NM, Minnesota, Nebraska, etc. That's another can of worms that is a step beyond our lawmakers as it involves dialouge other states AG's and lawmakers.
IMO, AK has the only correct firearms laws, as it is legal to carry OC or CC as long as YOU can legally own a firearm. All you need be able to do is show ID to a cop if asked so as to verify legal status. That, I believe, is about the best one can hope for. Will it ever come to Indiana? I doubt it, but I also doubted that Lifetime licences would get signed into law.
