In the previous post, others have wondered if the arrestee in question actually had an Indiana "CCW permit" (actually called a "license to carry handgun" in this state.)
I don't know if he did or didn't, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if he did, and the reason is the kooky pistol laws in this state. Indiana doesn't require any special licensing or whatnot to buy and own a handgun. However there's damned little you can legally do with that handgun unless you get a "pink card".
A "pink card" is easy to get: Take your non-criminal self to the cop shop and fill out a form and get fingerprinted (or fill it out online and just show up for the prints) and then fork over money. How much money you fork over determines how cool your pink card is: $5 gets you a "target/hunting" card, $30 for "personal protection", and $75 for "lifetime personal protection".
Given that it costs five bucks for a chit that lets you put your cased and unloaded pistol in the trunk and go to the range, and 25 bucks more for permission to go strapped pretty much anywhere, it is perhaps understandable that Indiana has an unusually high percentage of toter's permit holders.
Now, if you had sat through some eight hour course where some retired reserve deppity with an NRA instructor's certificate had told you lies about handguns, like "Load the first two chambers with snakeshot; that'll scare 'em off!" and then signed off on your shooting prowess after you'd successfully put four rounds out of five into the side of a barn, then maybe getting a toter's permit would have been a solemn enough event that you wouldn't inadvertently try to pack your gat into the Windy City, but we don't have that rite of passage here in Hoosierland (we also don't have special First Amendment training courses before being allowed to speak freely or go to church.)
Anyhow, bottom line: If you have an Indiana toter's chit, remember that it is no good in 50% of adjoining states, and it is doubleplus no good in Mordor.
