24-Hour News 8’s Joe Melillo has covered Indiana lawmakers’ previous efforts with proposals of this kind.

The bill, filed Thursday by Republican State Representative Jim Lucas, would eliminate a licensing requirement for Indiana residents who are otherwise legally able to carry a handgun.

In addition, the bill would set out the means for Indiana residents to carry firearms in another state, provided that state has a reciprocity agreement with Indiana.
