In this episode, I discuss the procedure I had to go through to renew my Indiana handgun license (Indiana Code: 35-47-2). Indiana has one of the oldest laws that issue licenses to its citizens for the carrying of handguns concealed or not. 1 in 15 Indiana residents, has a license to carry a handgun, which must be 26 inches or shorter in overall length.Indiana Application for Handgun License (PDF Format)

Indiana House Bill 1176 Effective July 1, 2006
New Lifetime Handgun License
UPDATE: I received an e-mail from a member (Ron) of the 2nd Amendment Patriots who said his group was involved in writing HB 1176. The group is very thankful to Rep Troy Woodruff and Sen Johnny Nugents in their efforts to get this bill passed.
I personally would like to thank all members of the 2nd Amendment Patriots for the great grassroots efforts they have made. And they should be a model to how effective a grassroot movement can be.
I would also like to thank Rep Troy Woodruff and Sen Johnny Nugents along with Governor Mitch Daniels for signing it into law.
