Alabama state parks carry -Possible Policy Change-
I've always thought that carry in Alabama state parks was not allowed unless you had the written permission of the head of the particular park, which is like getting the pot of gold from the leprechaun.
However, while researching something else tonight I noticed this
Notice the underlined text. I don't remember this from the past, although I might have overlooked it.
Prohibited Devices (220-5-.08)
(1) It shall be unlawful for any person other than a duly authorized law enforcement
officer to possess or carry into any State Park any form of firearm without written
permission of the manager or custodian in charge of the State Park visited;
provided, however, nothing in this regulation prohibits the possession of
handguns by lawfully licensed persons for personal protection, provided the
handguns are not used for any unlawful purpose. No person shall possess,
discharge or set off on or within a State park any firecrackers, torpedoes, rockets,
cap pistols, or other fireworks.
Has there been a policy change?
The underlined text is pretty clear in it's intent, which would mean licensed carry is legal.
Edit to add: I just checked HandgunlawsUS and they are listing State Park carry in Alabama as legal.
Could this be in response to the new National Park carry rules?
Not that I care why they did it....
