Indiana 'constitutional carry' bill signed by Eric Holcomb (indystar.com)
Does this law affect Gen Con and/or Indiana Convention Center policy in any way?
I know that weapons were not allowed in Gen Con previously, I just wanted to make sure this new law doesn't supersede the policy.
I'm not a lawyer, and this is not legal advice.
From what I've found, the intent of this bill is to remove the requirement of obtaining a permit to carry a concealed firearm. There do not appear to be any changes to who can legally possess one (non-felon, adult, etc), or how to obtain one. It appears that other restrictions remain in place. However, if you're thinking to carry, I suggest you get sound advice from an attorney.
Gen Con aware and looking into it.
Will update when we have done that.
To avoid any second amendment debates...you have plenty of other forums for that...I'm locking this thread.
