Btw, how old can you be to purchase a handgun in IN?
Fed. Law dictates 21 for handgun purchase.

However class separation never works well. Should someone be allowed to protect themselves when most would not? I personally know many 18-19 year olds that could ccw. If they all can't ccw than I'd vote no. Keep laws fair, or keep them gone.
As far as the drinking laws in general they have just gotten completely out of hand. It's always a hot topic that gets a lot of politicians easy votes from mother groups, churches & general do-gooders in general. I would be willing to bet that within 7 yrs most states will pass laws ruling that a second OUI (DUI) will be considered a felony with long minimum mandatory Sentences that will further clog up are jails & prisons that I will have to pay for.
Some places 1 is already a felony.
Dont get me started on this BS...drinking and driving is NOT a crime! Drinking and KILLING someone with a vehicle IS!
