I was hoping someone would quote the section. I used to have the Alabama Code up on my computer all the time. Not any more.
In SB286 it stated that only the state can pass any regulations to firearms, local or other departments cannot regulate firearms. Sorry, don't have the code infront of me.
Another issue that might be causing groups to stall out in this one, Alabama has two different groups... One group is essentially writing the bills that are trying to get passed, and the other group that opposes the first. There have been some rumors lately of where the one group stands in what they want the laws to be, and it really worries me.
Not all counties have been having this problem, but some counties are facing the same problems as the rest stops where the sheriff is printing signs and delivering them to the businesses telling them they have to put the sign up for many different reasons varying from liability to you don't want this to turn into the wild wild west.
