Gov. Eric Holcomb announced that he plans to sign a series of controversial measures that include gun and abortion legislation.
Lawmakers approved a bill this session allowing legislative staffers to carry guns into the Statehouse. Holcomb says he supports the reasoning behind the bill.
“They put in long hours – especially during the session – and they are walking blocks away, oftentimes after midnight. And I can sympathize with someone who wants to be able to protect themselves and feel secure,” Holcomb says.
