I have not lived outside of Alabama that long. Let me say this, I know it is legal to have a gun in your car or on your person if you are dropping off / picking up kids at school and you are not getting out.
But, in addition to that, the law regarding carrying a gun into a school is worded in such a way that it is in fact legal for a person with a CCW permit to carry in a school. Let me explain.
The law states (paraphrasing) that it is illegal to carry a gun into a school with the intent to harm someone or to commit a hostile act.
In Saint Elmo Alabama, between Mobile and the Mississippi state line, there was a man who carried a gun concealed into an elementary school and someone caught sight of it. The police were called and he was arrested. But, all charges were dropped when it was determined that he had no ill intent and was just legally carrying his gun.
Alabama is an interesting state and one that I honestly miss living in. I wouldn't mind going back to Alabama someday. just not close to the Gulf Coast. I've had enough of hurricanes for 10 lifetimes.
