The Senate Judiciary Committee has published its agenda for next week, and once again, House Bill 1369 is not on it. HB 1369 has gained 21 total co-sponsors, including a majority of that committee. This is likely to be the last time the Senate Judiciary Committee meets for the session. Please contact the committee chair, Senator Liz Brown, and ask her to put HB 1369 on the agenda for this upcoming week.
House Bill 1369 allows any law-abiding adult who is legally eligible to obtain a carry permit to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. It does not affect previously issued carry permits, and allows citizens who still wish to obtain a permit in order to carry in other states recognizing Indiana permits, to do so.
Again, please contact the committee chair, Senator Liz Brown, and ask her to put HB 1369 on the agenda.
