A bill that would allow Hoosiers to carry a handgun without a license has taken a step forward in the state legislature.

An Indiana House committee voted to advance a constitutional carry bill to the full House Wednesday, after hearing in lots of testimony from several Hoosiers, organizations, and even law enforcement officers both for and against the bill.

"Our state has a gun violence problem," said Shortridge High School student El'ad Nichols-Kaufman. "When faced with a problem like this we need to take steps and work to solve the problem. This bill would do the exact opposite, and make the situation exponentially worse."

Under the bill, the state's current gun licensing process would essentially be eliminated. Licenses would still be issued by the state, but the long process towards obtaining it would be done away with.

It would also allow people from outside the state who do not have an Indiana license to carry their handguns anyway.
