A controversial piece of gun legislation is heading to Gov. Eric Holcomb’s desk after it passed through the legislature.
It allows people protected by restraining orders to carry handguns without a license for up to 60 days.
It passed easily in the House, 74 to 26, and in the Senate, 38 to 12. But those opposed argued it would escalate domestic violence situations.
Hoosiers are already allowed to keep firearms at home without a license. Senate sponsor Mark Messmer (D-Princeton) says the bill keeps victims safe outside the home.
