Gov. Holcomb Refuses to Support Constitutional Carry Legislation

Mar 4, 2022

Indianapolis, IN – Yesterday, Gov. Eric Holcomb refused to support Constitutional Carry legislation in Indiana. Holcomb supported police Superintendent Douglas Carter who opposes Constitutional Carry, but would not confirm if he agrees with Carters total opposition. Superintendent Carter has scolded lawmakers for supporting its passage.

“Unfortunately we see this kind of fearmongering and opposition in nearly every state which has passed Constitutional Carry into law,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Yet, none of it is based in reality. Constitutional Carry laws protect law-abiding citizens — they don’t arm criminals like some would have you believe. When ordinary folks have their gun rights restored, more law-abiding citizens carry and keep themselves and their community safe.”  

Constitutional Carry is the most popular pro-gun legislation in the country, with 21 states recognizing it as the law. Neighboring Ohio is soon to become the 22nd state with its legislature passing their own bill and sending it to the desk of Gov. Mike DeWine.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has also gone on the record twice this year, asking the legislature to send the bill to his desk so it can be signed into law.

“States all over the nation are passing Constitutional Carry. Ohio is about to pass it, and strong pro-gun governors like Ron DeSantis are begging his legislature to get it done. Yet, Eric Holcomb would rather force you to beg the government for permission in order to exercise your constitutional right. It’s honestly sad, but not surprising.” said Will Fite, Director of Legislation for Hoosier Gun Rights, the Indiana state affiliate for the National Association for Gun Rights.

The National Association for Gun Rights and Hoosier Gun Rights have worked to pass Constitutional Carry in Indiana for multiple legislative cycles, and will continue working until concealed carry permits are rendered optional.

If passed in 2022, Indiana could become the 22nd or 23rd state to restore gun rights for law-abiding Americans within its borders.

The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
