    Alabama Omnibus Firearms Reform Bill Passes Senate Committee

    Alabama Senate bill 286 was voted on, and APPROVED by a 7-1 vote by the Judiciary Committee!!

    NRA-ILA | Alabama Omnibus Firearms Reform Bill Passes Senate Committee

    SB 286 seeks to restore and protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners in Alabama by addressing the following issues:

    • No employer may prohibit the otherwise lawful possession, transportation or storage of firearms or ammunition that is kept out of sight within a locked or attended private vehicle of an invitee who is otherwise permitted to operate or park that vehicle on the property. This would allow employees to carry a firearm during their commute to and from work.
    • Repeals the requirement to obtain a pistol permit in order to carry a pistol in a vehicle. (Note: this would not allow for the concealed carry in a vehicle unless a valid pistol permit is possessed.)
    • Shifts the current “May Issue” concealed carry permit system to a “Shall Issue” permit system and requires that a sheriff must issue the carry permit within thirty days. Should someone be denied a permit, a written denial must be provided and that applicant would have an opportunity to appear before an appeal panel.
    • A permit to carry a concealed pistol shall be good for one to five years (to be decided by the person seeking the carry permit).
    • Requires sheriffs to use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to conduct a background check on concealed pistol permit applicants.
    • Allows for all other valid state-issued permits to carry a concealed firearm to be recognized in Alabama.
    • Strengthens Alabama’s firearms preemption statute by reserving for the state legislature complete control over regulation and policy relating to firearms, ammunition and firearm accessories in order to ensure that such regulation is applied uniformly throughout the state.



    This is the first major pro-gun reform bill in years that's made it favorably out of committee.. contact your state reps!

    Finally another great pushback to the anti gunners and a great positive step to help restore a little bit of our 2nd Ammendment and maybe gives some of us a little hope that even though we are struggling on the federal front the states are doing something themselves to better the rights of the American People.

    Power to the People!

    Nice to see a few States standing up to defend our rights. Now if Colorado had a few men and women that would actually lead and quit folding to the protectionist. So glad I don't like in one of the wimpy nanny states right now.

    There seems to be a vacuum of constitutional leadership right now. Way to go Alabama!!

    Awesome! Glad to see there's great support in Bama! Maybe you could rub off some of that common sense here in Colorado?
