Alabama “Permitless” Carry Dies Because Of Rep. Treadaway

posted on May 25, 2017

Alabama is already an open carry state, so when Senate Bill 24—which would eliminate the requirement to obtain a permit to lawfully carry—passed out of the Senate, it seemed like the next logical step in the progression of the state’s gun rights. “Every citizen should have the right to bear arms without paying a fee,” Republican State Sen. Gerald Allen, sponsor of the measure, told the Associated Press.

Instead, the Alabama Legislature adjourned last week without bringing the bill to the House floor for a vote. Gun owners can thank Rep. Allen Treadaway, chairman of the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee, for that.

Treadaway led the efforts to kill both this bill and its companion, House Bill 414, and he had the measures assigned to subcommittee. As NRA-ILA noted, he “blatantly ignored the wishes of his constituents and law-abiding gun owners across Alabama” in getting these bills killed.
