Got to thinking today, if Constitutional Carry got passed and then in say 10 years we end up with a Left Wing governor/house and they repeal CC, would our Lifetime LTCH's still be valid?
In my mind, I would think they would be good for, well, a lifetime but knowing how crooked government can be...
What says INGO?
Theoretically, even your LTCH is just a bill and a signature away from being revoked. As I understand it, every CC bill that's been considered the last few years, all kept the LTCH around for reciprocity. All it would take is some not-so-very-imaginative writing in the repeal of CC to cause trouble for your LTCH.
That would cause trouble for Indiana though. If CC went away and they got slick and rendered your LTCH useless, then that might make any ability to bear arms illegal and a long, uncertain, and drawn out court battle away from being turned on its ear.
First, I'm not aware of any state ever going backwards. They start either No Issue, May Issue, Shall Issue, or Constitutional carry.The moves have all been rightward, from NI to MI or SI. None has ever moved from CC to SI or MI, nor from SI to MI or NI.
With that said, the answer to the question is the infamous, "it depends", in this case, on how the bill is written. Given our (State) Constitution as written, I think that such a bill, if signed, would invalidate the protection of the RKBA by the law, but it would then be subject to challenge. However many years and lives later, I think that the bill would be overridden as unConstitutional, but that would not bring back the gun stores, nor the sales, nor the industry, and certainly not the lives lost because those who obey the law did so, while the ones we need to worry about did not.
I also think that whoever voted for or signed such a bill into law should face their constituencies and accept the responsibility for their actions. A bucket or two of tar, a few feather pillows, and a fence-rail would be needed for each of them, I think.
and maybe a match.
we all know (I hope / expect) that our freedom is bought with the blood and lives of patriots gone before;
But there is a price we pay as we owe this freedom, not to ourselves, but to our posterity.
We are but Stewards, each generation guarding Freedom for the next and their future,
2 and 3 generations down the line; training them for them to take our place.
The cost of our role in freedom and liberty, until we join those gone before, is eternal vigilance.
We guard from Enemies, Foreign and Domestic;
and from Complacency, Neglect and Ignorance of those who follow us.
