    I like the idea of having a printed copy of the law concerning OC in Indiana in my wallet just in case someone hassles you because they do not understand the law. Does anyone practice this? And if so, could you post the wording you keep printed so that others of us can print it and use it?

    Thanks a lot!

    Sure, if you can find a law that says anything about OC, that would be great!

    I know there are no laws that mention Open Carry, but i wasn't sure if anyone had cards exlaining the "license to carry handgun" IS permission to open carry since it is not prohibitted. If it was a dumb question, and no one does this in Indiana, then I understand, and no worries...

    Your license to carry doesn't specify how to carry and you have that with you. If you want to have more, perhaps an email to the state police asking about OC and a print of their reply would help?

    I suppose a stubborn, uniformed local police officer might need to see info on state preemption as well.

    For purposes of clarity, carrying a copy of Indiana's statutes isn't all that helpful regarding how handguns may be carried. All the law says is that the only way handguns can be carried (does not specify whether it is concealed or openly) is if the person carrying has a valid license. That is all. Thus, showing a copy of the statute to a person or LEO who is anti OC probably would not do much to convince them of the legality of it. Sure, it is not illegal unless there is some law specifically prohibiting it, but in their minds, it is the opposite; that means if you can't show them something specific showing that it is legal, then you're not going to convince them.

    This may help. This is for non-residents but it does say you can carry either way.


    Dear Mr. xxxxx:

    Indiana honors all other states handgun license while visiting or passing through our state. Our law does not state that your weapon has to be concealed or unconcealed. Being concealeddoes not draw attention to you or make people feel uneasy. You may check this web site for more information. http://www.in.gov/isp and go under firearms to see what it has. Also, this web site: http://www.ai.org/legislative/ic/cod...r47/index.html

    If you have any other questions, please let us know.

    Thanks,

    My suggestion is more along these lines:

    Once an officer begins to be confrontational over the issue, you should no longer see the interaction as an opportunity to educate and inform. Instead, you should see it as an opportunity to exercise your 5th Amendment right, and ****.
