Two points on this:

A) It was never truly Constitutional Carry, as there were still rules in place. True Constitutional Carry would be total repeal of all LTCH rules and laws. It was never a good bill to begin with, but at least it was a step in the right direction.

B) Relford, Bray, Smaltz, Brown, NAGR and HGR are all pointing fingers at each other for it's failure. It is ultimately a failure of the Senate Republicans to pass it and they are acting like the weak Progressives they are.
Total repeal of any and all provision for a license is sub-optimal for those of us who actually spend time outside of the state. Unless/until there is federal, interstate constitutional carry, having the availability of a license for reciprocity purposes is required.

This alone should be enough to make this bill popular with everyone. Of course, it doesn’t work that way…

“The bill will remove misdemeanor offenses for most people who carry a handgun without a permit while also increasing punishments for other gun crimes such as increasing a theft of a firearm from a misdemeanor to a felony.”

I am not sure. Assuming maybe Google Pay? :dunno: I paid thru PayPal
I got it figured out. They take credit cards as well so I became a member of the 2a project and according to the website they make money from the T-shirts they sell and put the proceeds towards fighting for Hoosier's gun rights. So I grabbed a T-shirt as well. Hopefully my tiny contribution helps some.

What good does it do to create more felonies for actually felonious crimes, when prosecutors, if they even bother to pursue those crimes, more often than not will plea the felony down anyway. After all, it's just too hard to prosecute violent criminals for their violent crimes.
