The Indiana state capitol is getting better protected under a new Indiana law that allows lawmakers and staffers to carry handguns in the Statehouse and other Indiana government buildings. All they need is a valid state concealed carry permit. The move by the largely Republican legislature was designed to keep state lawmakers and their staffer safer. It is hoped that knowing many could be armed serves as a deterrent to any would-be mass shooters.
However, there are some limitations that government staff must adhere to or they could find themselves in trouble. One of the limitations involves being restricted from carrying their concealed carry weapon at certain government meetings.
