Apr 29, 2019 | Gun Control Laws

In addition to the sixteen Constitutional Carry states, Indiana has become the 17th state that doesn’t require a fee or training to get a concealed handgun permit. The Constitutional Carry states don’t require a permit as long as you are within their state, but you have to get a permit to carry outside of your state. Those permits require fees.

Besides the 16 Constitutional Carry states and Indiana, there are seven other states with permits that don’t require training to carry a gun.
