    Speak softly, and carry a big stick.

    Sounds like Indiana has their act together! I was born and raised in Indiana, but moved to Ohio in 1960 after graduation from HS. Ohio's gun laws aren't too bad, but Indiana's sound even better. I'll be returning this summer for my 50th HS reunion, and will be carrying.

    Anyone thinking of moving here, there is no wait to apply for a license, as soon as you acquire your DL you are good to go!

    Lived in Maryland for 10 years and really needed to carry but couldn't. Glad I am home!

    Why? It's still Indiana.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    I have not read the bill but I have lived in Indiana my entire life and I have always understood it to be a "right to hire state" which means as long as a employerer doesn't fire you for something that falls under the federal heading of discrimination (race, gender, etc) that they could fire you for anything else they wanted. I'll have to find the bill and read as this has my interest now.

    Agreed. It's not prosecutable by law, but your employer can still do anything they want (as long as it doesnt come under the heading of discrimination, etc).

    On my yearly trips from Oklahoma to Pennsylvania I always stop for the night in Indiania. On the other hand I never stop in Illinois!

    Well, as expected, some employers don't like the new law (doesn't come into effect until July 1st).

    A friend just sent me a memo he got today from his employer:

    Gov. Mitch Daniels recently signed into law legislation that allows employees to keep guns in locked vehicles even if those vehicles are parked on company property. That law takes effect on July 1, 2010.

    Cummins’ policy prohibits employees from bringing guns onto all Company property – and it remains in effect. We are in the process of reviewing the applicability of the law to each Cummins' facility. Until further notice, Cummins employees are not permitted to bring firearms onto any Company property, which includes vehicles in the parking lot.
    Man this stinks!

    I wish I had never stopped in Illinois. Now 35 years later, I'm still regretting it. But, we go where the jobs are and I had a good career in Illinois. When my wife retires, I'll be moving to a gun friendly state. Indiana, Ohio, Arkansas, Texas, Arizona......

    I wish TN would get the parking at work law started again. It died in committee the last time out.

    Maybe some of the newer gun laws will rub off on Illinois then I might consider staying there longer.

    Sorry, but don't hold your breath! It would be nice, and if they would ever recognize Indiana's LTCH, that would be great!!!

    Yeppie!!!

    We just went from a 6 to a 4 on the Brady Bunches State scale!!! I love losing points with them!!!!
    That's a good sign. In the big picture.........."things are getting better".........I've grown accustomed to thinking this isn't possible anymore. I've always been optimistic in my outlook.

    Good for my home state of Indiana! It's a great state and sounds like it is getting better all the time!
