Three Things You Can Do If You Are Denied a Handgun Permit in Indiana

In Indiana, there are hundreds of thousands of Hoosiers with a License to Carry a handgun. Because of the extraordinary complexity in firearms laws, a person may be denied a license for a number of reasons that can be addressed and the license issued. This blog post covers three key points about denial.

First, if you are denied a license, you have the right to a hearing at the Indiana State Police (ISP). They are very dutiful in considering the merits of every denial, but a timely hearing has to be requested and the issues of denial properly addressed. The point is a denial is not the end of the legal road if you want to try to obtain a license.

Second, a license to carry denial may be based on underlying incomplete or inaccurate information maintained in computer databases the ISP must rely on. With proper legal work, these may be corrected or completed and allow you to have a license. Sometimes this is a long process, but counsel can guide you.

Third, the fact you were issued a permit in the past does not mean it cannot be suspended or revoked. This is not true, and even actions in carrying a firearm in a different state under reciprocity may cause your license to be suspended or revoked, granted or renewed. This may take work in another state to address, but again, you have a right to due process and this may be corrected in some cases.
