Governor Kay Ivey signed into law House Bill 272 which removes the requirement for a permit to carry a pistol concealed or in a vehicle. While I have not yet had a chance to read all of the changes in the Code of Alabama, this does sound like a giant leap forward for us.

"§13A-11-85. (a) A person licensed to carry a handgun in any state shall be authorized to carry a handgun in this state. This section shall apply to a license holder from another state only while the license holder is not a resident of this state. A license holder from another state shall carry the handgun in compliance with the laws of this state."

sorry failed to read in the 30 pages of the HB where it changes to the commentary AL citizens do not need a permit to carry a handgun...


but the let the flag waving for AL's citizens only...

"Really Crummey wording giving lots of wiggle room."

To paraphrase the great humorist, Will Rogers, "When the legislature makes a joke, it's law and when they make a law, it's a joke."

I took a little time and read over the statutes involved in this legislation and I can't find anything benefiting gunowners. From what I read AL is not a second amendment state. There are way too many restrictions.
