Thread: Indiana Open Carry?

  1. IN open carry

    check out OpenCarry.org - A Right Unexercised is a Right Lost! ...
    from what I have read on that site, you may carry open or concealed but you must have a permit to carry either way. KY you may carry open without a permit...again according to what i read on the website

    Just to clarify.... if you search the Indiana code looking for authorization to open carry in Indiana, you won't find it. Open carry in Indiana (with a License to Carry a Handgun) is legal ONLY because the Indiana Code is silent on the issue.

    Exactly.

    IC 35-47-2-1
    Carrying a handgun without a license or by person convicted of domestic battery
    Sec. 1. (a) Except as provided in subsection (b) and section 2 of this chapter, a person shall not carry a handgun in any vehicle or on or about the person's body, except in the person's dwelling, on the person's property or fixed place of business, without a license issued under this chapter being in the person's possession.

    One more tidbit......

    "without a license issued under this chapter being in the person's possession."
    But, if you should forget your license.......


    IC 35-47-2-24
    Indictment or information; defendant's burden to prove exemption or license; arrest, effect of production of valid license, or establishment of exemption
    Sec. 24. (a) In an information or indictment brought for the enforcement of any provision of this chapter, it is not necessary to negate any exemption specified under this chapter, or to allege the absence of a license required under this chapter. The burden of proof is on the defendant to prove that he is exempt under section 2 of this chapter, or that he has a license as required under this chapter.
    (b) Whenever a person who has been arrested or charged with a violation of section 1 of this chapter presents a valid license to the prosecuting attorney or establishes that he is exempt under section 2 of this chapter, any prosecution for a violation of section 1 of this chapter shall be dismissed immediately, and all records of an arrest or proceedings following arrest shall be destroyed immediately.
    As added by P.L.311-1983, SEC.32.

    I have my Indiana Permit, and I had to take a class to get my Utah Non Resident Permit - I think the police in Indiana should have to take a class on how we are allowed to carry in Indiana.

    That, sir, has never been disputed.

    I just stumbled upon this thread and I'm going to give my response, which has probably already been posted. Indiana, like Michigan, is "silent" regarding open carry. There's no law that says it's legal, but there's no law that says it's ILLEGAL, which actually makes it a legal activty....no law saying that you can't OC - period. I've spent time in Indiana while openly carrying, after communicating with the Indiana State Police on the issue.
    Don't do anything you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics...
