[Ben]:Lifetime Permits Discuss This [0 comments so far] View Comments
Nate was kind enough to get this info:
I got off work early today and thought I would go get my lifetime permit today. I was wrong.

For those of you who currently have permits you have to wait until six months before your current permit expires before you can get a lifetime license. Since mine does not expire until July of 2009 I have a bit of a wait.

For those of you that do not have a permit you will need a $75 MONEY ORDER made payable to the State of Indiana and $52 in cash (Exact denomination) for the sheriff fee and notary fee.

For those you that do have a permit that will expire in 6 months of if it is getting close you will need a $60 MONEY ORDER made payable to the State of Indiana and $42 in cash (Exact denomination) for the sheriff fee and notary fee.

I hope this helps so that some of you will not have to waste your time going down to the courthouse only to have them tell you that you do not yet qualify.


This is most interesting considering the following:
6. (a) Every initial application for any license under this chapter shall be granted or rejected within sixty (60) days after the application is filed.
(b) The period during which an application for the renewal of an existing license may be filed begins one hundred eighty (180) days before the expiration of the existing license. If the application for renewal of an existing license is filed within thirty (30) days of its expiration, the existing license is automatically extended until the application for renewal is passed upon. An application for a lifetime license may be filed at any time.


I sent the following email to the Indiana State Police:
A friend of mine went to the Hendricks County Sheriff's Department today to apply for a lifetime handgun carry permit. They wouldn't accept his application and told him that he had to wait until his permit was within six months of expiring.

I called the department and they told me that they were working on instructions from the Indiana State Police.

SENATE BILL No. 54 can be found here:
http://www.in.gov/legislative/bills/2006/ES/ES0054.2.html

It would appear that effective July 1, 2006, IC 35-47-2-6 has been modified to read as follows:

**************
6. (a) Every initial application for any license under this chapter shall be granted or rejected within sixty (60) days after the application is filed.
(b) The period during which an application for the renewal of an existing license may be filed begins one hundred eighty (180) days before the expiration of the existing license. If the application for renewal of an existing license is filed within thirty (30) days of its expiration, the existing license is automatically extended until the application for renewal is passed upon. An application for a lifetime license may be filed at any time.
**************

If that is accurate, shouldn't applications for lifetime licenses be accepted at any time, not just within six months of expiration?

Thank you,
Ben
