And Indiana Makes 24!
On Monday, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed the bill which removed the permit requirements for open or concealed carry in the state. Indiana now becomes the 24th constitutional carry state in the nation, the third to do so in 2022. Are you noticing the trend yet?
As always, the gun control zealot groups opposed this but were joined by the Indiana State Police, officers and representatives from the Fort Wayne Police Department, Evansville Police Department, the Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police, and the Indiana State Fraternal Order of Police.
Opponents, many of whom involved in the now defunct, “Defund the Police” movement, claim to be backing the police by saying it will put law enforcement lives in danger. They also falsely claim “Weakening permitting systems has increased gun violence in other states and is broadly opposed by law enforcement, including law enforcement in Indiana.”
Again, I highlight the opposition from law enforcement groups. While the official stance of the “department”, it typically reflects only the opinion of those at the top, the chief law enforcement officers, and their rulers-in-waiting staff, whom I collectively refer to as politicians with badges. Meanwhile, survey after survey of the rank-and-file officers dramatically opposed to gun control laws. Still, public policy and enforcement priorities are set by the politicians, not those who are actually working the street. As such, many are faced with the choice of following orders of dubious constitutional validity, and not having a job. Sadly, it is the citizens who lose in this situation.
In condemning constitutional carry, the gun control crowd always point to self-funded “research” which shows how strong gun control laws make the public safer and weak gun laws spur violence. Of course, they fail to mention that the violence is in the most gun-controlled areas and they always blame the weaker gun laws of OTHER states, which DO NOT have the same violence levels as the most gun controlled areas.
Remember, gun control does absolutely nothing to increase public safety and the answer to fix that shortcoming is always to implement more gun control.
