    Alabama -Off limit places ?

    I will be going to Alabama in a few months and wanted to see what are the restrictions on concealed carry from some locals.

    After a quick read of the law it seems like the only place that is off limits is a public demonstration. Is this so? That would mean it is ok to conceal carry with a valid permit in:

    Professional & school sponsored sporting events
    Bars even at the bar while drinking
    School property
    And a business with a gun buster sign means nothing unless asked to leave.

    Would this all be true?

    Thanks

    ...from this site:
    A license to conceal carry firearms does not authorize any person to carry a concealed firearm into, but not limited to, the following places:
    • any airport, courthouse or criminal justice building;
    • any public gatherings such as sporting events,
    political events, parades, etc.

    I would assume that airport is off limits. However in looking through Alabama code, I can't find anything that prohibits:
    any public gatherings such as sporting events,
    political events, parades, etc.

    Aside from Demonstrations
    "Demonstrating, picketing, speechmaking or marching, holding of vigils and all other like forms of conduct which involve the communication or expression of views or grievances engaged in by one or more persons, the conduct of which has the effect, intent or propensity to draw a crowd or onlookers. Such term shall not include casual use of property by visitors or tourists which does not have an intent or propensity to attract a crowd or onlookers.?

    (4) PUBLIC PLACE. Any place to which the general public has access and a right to resort for business, entertainment or other lawful purpose, but does not necessarily mean a place devoted solely to the uses of the public. Such term shall include the front or immediate area or parking lot of any store, shop, restaurant, tavern, shopping center or other place of business. Such term shall also include any public building, the grounds of any public building, or within the curtilage of any public building, or in any public parking lot, public street, right-of-way, sidewalk right-of-way, or within any public park or other public grounds.

This subsection shall not apply to any person in possession of or having on his or her person any firearm within a private dwelling or other private building or structure.
    Section 13A-11-59
    (c) It shall be unlawful for any person, other than a law enforcement officer as defined in subsection (a) of this section, to have in his or her possession or about his or her person or in any vehicle at a point within 1,000 feet of a demonstration at a public place, any firearm after having first been advised by a law enforcement officer that a demonstration was taking place at a public place and after having been ordered by such officer to remove himself or herself from the prescribed area until such time as he or she no longer was in possession of any firearm.
    Note: Sheriffs in Alabama can and do put other restrictions on the permit holders they issue to. Do be aware of any of those restrictions that may be on your permit/license to carry. Carrying where alcohol is served or consuming alcohol while carrying is one I have seen on more than one Alabama Sheriffs web site that adds these restrictions. Government buildings are another restricted item they add. Most state City, County and State Government Buildings are off limits. Again do be aware of any restriction on your permit/license. These restrictions if noted on the permit/license would be in effect in any other county in Alabama you would visit. When going out of state and carrying on an Alabama permit/license that Alabama honors you must go by the laws of the state you are in. Do be careful.

    So it would seem like you can carry on the grounds of a school, sporting event etc...

    In a nutshell, post office, court house, airport, criminal justice buildings, jails, within 1000ft of a demonstration. Pretty much all I can think of off the top of my head, but I need coffee so don't hold me to it :D
