Indiana Gun Laws

As far as states go, Indiana is more liberal with its conceal and carry laws. While other states restrict gun sales to those ages 21 and over, Indiana’s minimum age is 18. Permits from out of state are honored here as well. The law even allows permit holders to bring a gun into a liquor establishment. However, there are certain places guns are simply not allowed.

You may not bring a gun to locations such as:

  • School property
  • Certain areas of an airport
  • The Indiana State Fair
  • Any shipping port
  • A riverboat casino
  • Other restricted areas, such as official government offices

What to Do if Arrested for a Gun Crime

Even if you know the law and are operating within your rights, you may have been arrested for a gun crime. The first thing you need to do is call a Fishers criminal defense lawyer. While talking with the police may seem like a reasonable idea to clear up any confusion, the truth is their job is to build a case against you, and they will use anything you say to help their cause. With a lawyer present, you can tell your side of the story and fight to protect your future.

Possible defenses could include:

  • Your actions were not illegal – It is not against Indiana law to bring a gun into a restaurant. However, a posted sign may say otherwise and restaurant staff may call the police, leading to your arrest.
  • You were not actually in possession of a firearm – It is the job of the prosecutor to prove that you did, in fact, have a gun in your possession at the time of the arrest.
  • Unlawful search – If the evidence for your crime was obtained unlawfully, it cannot be admitted into court during your trial.

Do not try to fight your case alone. Being convicted of a gun crime could result in loss of your ability to own a gun. Call Massillamany Jeter & Carson LLP to get the representation you need.
