    As a compromise in the debate over Constitutional Carry, the Indiana legislature passed a firearms reform bill that eliminated the fee for an Indiana lifetime carry permit. The fee for the 5-year permit was eliminated in 2019. That law went into effect on 1 July 2020. From the Crime Prevention Research Center, Indiana had 967,061 permits as of July 1, 2020.

    Have you heard the one about the dead cars? No, not the ones we find in junkyards, but the ones that haven’t had life yet, thanks to the chip shortage. These so-called “dead” cars are vehicles that have rolled off the assembly line, otherwise ready for sale, sitting in fields or on lots near the factories that produced them, just waiting for chips The New York Times even recently recounted an anecdote from a dealer principal who took a pilgrimage to a Ford factory to see all the “dead” cars for himself. We weren’t able to pin down a reliable...

    "...Raskin told Hayes: "We got very lucky with Mike Pence." "All they wanted Pence to do was to rebuff the electors coming in from Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania, lowering Biden's total below 270, kicking the presidential contest into a contingent election," Raskin said. In the event that no presidential candidate can reach 270 Electoral College votes, the next president is selected by the House of Representatives. This rare situation has not arisen since the 19th century.

    Federal prosecutors on Tuesday afternoon announced that a grand jury indicted Tonya Robinson, the former executive director of the South Bend Housing Authority, and four others in a scheme that defrauded the U.S. government of millions of dollars. The indictment says payments to the contractors totaled $5.8 million "over the course of the scheme." The money went to the "personal use and benefit" of the defendants, according to the indictment, including "spending the proceeds at local casinos." Robinson, 58, who ran the authority from 2014 until she was fired in September 2019, made cash deposits into her personal bank accounts...

    Two former publishing executives have launched a pro-free speech book publisher that will avail its presses to conservatives whose platforms have been canceled. Conservative authors have increasingly had more trouble getting their books published in major publishing houses recently as the U.S. political environment has become more polarized, the executives, Louise Burke and Kate Hartson told The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday. The two joined forces to create All Seasons Press as a response to the trend of major book publishers de-platforming conservatives. “I’m increasingly concerned and somewhat outraged about what’s going on in terms of free speech and free...

    Organizers met at Happy Hollow Park and traveled together to Centennial Park, where the fourth day of the march began. They are doing similar walks in cities across Indiana for seven days and 300 miles. "For more than 15 years now, we have been driving in fear, driving to work without protection and it was something that once protected us from deportation, and so we're here demanding that we have that right back," says Catalan-Ruano. "It's not a luxury, it's not a privilege. We should all have the right to drive." The group is pushing state legislators to allow "driving...

    The 10-member panel on the House Ethics Committee voted Thursday to drop the $5,000 fine issued to Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), who challenged the report by the Capitol that said she failed to complete a security screening before entering the House building. This is the third time a majority of the evenly split bipartisan panel voted in favor of waiving the metal detector fee since the Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol. In May the Capitol Police issued a report that documented an incident where Foxx set off a metal detector in front of a door to the House chamber....

Many Americans have been led to believe that Capitol Police were responsible for the horrific execution of the unarmed veteran patriot, Ashli Babbitt, during the chaotic event at the US Capitol building on January 6. However, a new report from the Spectator suggests that her killer was a member of the United States Secret Service...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence joined the chorus of voices against Critical Race Theory, blasting the race-baiting curriculum as “state sanctioned racism” during remarks at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Thursday. "Critical race theory teaches children as young as kindergarten to be ashamed of their skin color. It represents a full-throated assault aimed at the heart of the American experiment," Pence said. "It is nothing short of state-sponsored and state-sanctioned racism. Our party must ensure that critical race theory is expelled from our schools, our military, and our public institutions.” The former VP added that "we must eliminate critical...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence reiterated at a speech at the Reagan Library on Thursday he did not have the constitutional authority to stop the count of the electoral votes on Jan. 6. “Now there are those in our party who believe that in my position as presiding officer over the joint session that I possess the authority to reject or return electoral votes certified by the states,” Pence said. "The Constitution provides the vice president with no such authority before the joint session of Congress." Some Republicans, including former President Trump, called for Pence to reject electoral votes on...

    One of the worst-kept secrets in Indiana politics officially is out of the bag — Jennifer McCormick is a Democrat. The former state superintendent of public instruction confirmed Monday she no longer identifies with the Indiana Republican Party that nominated and elected her in 2016 to lead the Indiana Department of Education. McCormick said she now realizes the values she held during her four years as state schools chief, including taking care of the whole child while pursuing academic excellence, only can be fulfilled by the Indiana Democratic Party.
