Hoosier lawmaker wants to throw out need for gun licenses

While President Obama is using executive powers to tighten gun laws, a new measure sent to the Indiana Statehouse would no longer require a license to carry a handgun in the Hoosier State. Representative Jim Lucas of Seymour introduced House Bill 1056 today, along with another bill to prohit state agencies and universities from regulating firearms in their buildings or on their land. Both bills come after a proposal to make it easier for repeat alcohol offenders to get a handgun license. Lawmakers are convening today for the first day of this legislative session.
