In light of President Trump’s crusade against journalists, one Indiana lawmakers wants them to be licensed.
According to the Indianapolis Star, Republican State Representative Jim Lucas says that if gun owners should have licenses, journalists should too.
He’s drafted a bill that would establish licensing fees and penalties for reporters.
Lucas says the he may file that bill in response to criticism about his effort to repeal a state law requiring handgun carriers to have a permit.
President Trump called for the Federal Communications Commission to pull NBC’s broadcasting license because he didn’t like what they were reporting about him.
