Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Indiana lawmakers approved a constitutional carry bill that would allow adult residents in the state to carry a handgun without a license. The National Rifle Association urged supporters to contact Governor Holcomb and ask him to sign the legislation, saying the bill “ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays.” Republican state Sen. Eric Koch, who introduced the bill in the Senate, said, “Criminals already carry firearms without regard for the law… Lawful carry simply puts the law-abiding on equal footing.”
