In 2022, Indiana repealed laws that previously generally required a permit to carry concealed or openly carried handguns in most public places.1 People who are not prohibited under state or federal law are now generally authorized to carry handguns as well as long guns without a license or permit, although some location restrictions apply. See the Indiana Concealed Weapons Permitting and Location Restrictions pages for more information.
