Several readers sent me different articles about this memorable occasion.
Today, Governor Eric Holcomb signed House Bill 1296, constitutional carry, into law. The General Assembly previously passed HB 1296 on March 8th. This makes Indiana the 24th constitutional carry state, and the third to join that group in 2022, following Ohio and Alabama. Indiana already offers free lifetime carry permits, so constitutional carry ensures that law-abiding citizens who are already eligible to obtain a carry permit can access their right-to-carry without government red tape and delays. Constitutional carry will go into effect on July 1st, 2022.
One more state and half the country will be Constitutional Carry (with small different flavors depending). And my prediction is that we should see the damn busting and the flooding going towards most of the remaining states, pretty much what happened with Shall Issue Carry or maybe even faster.
Obviously, this Constitutional Carry trend has not set well with Moms Demand who were desperate to the point of seemingly accepting permitted carry as trade for Governor Holcomb to veto the bill.
Of course, when I pointed out the shift in their position..
This was her response:
Oh well. We shall celebrate when have the 26th State becoming Constitutional. I may even order a Moms Demand T shirt and burn it in the backyard to celebrate their impending trip into obvlivion.
