Indiana has moved very close to Constitutional Carry. Not only isn’t training mandated, but they have now made the lifetime permit free.
Lawmakers voted to nix all handgun carry permit fees as part of their massive two-year budget . . . Lawmakers previously had made the five-year carry permits free. If Gov. Eric Holcomb signs the budget bill as expected, the $125 lifetime permits would also be free. Usually, some of that money goes toward local police training, so lawmakers back filled the financial loss for local communities in the budget.Kaitlin Lange, “Indiana lawmakers eliminate fee for handgun carry permits one week after FedEx shooting,” Indianapolis Star, April 23, 2021.
