Alabama AG Continues Campaign To Eliminate Gun-Free Zones

posted on September 30, 2016

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange continued his policy of eliminating gun-free zones this week by ordering 10 facilities in four counties to remove signs prohibiting firearms. The attorney general’s investigation determined each location—including two town halls, a library, a recreation center and public park—had failed to comply with state law by displaying illegal ‘no guns’ signs. 

Late last year, Strange’s office sent a letter to officials in Selma and nearby Shelby county requesting they comply with the state’s open-carry law, which was passed in 2013. This resulted in 10 city-owned entities as well as three local government offices removing their gun-free signs. 

Alabama’s open-carry debate began in earnest five years ago when Jason Tulley, a Jacksonville resident, carried a pistol into the First Educators Credit Union and was charged with open carry. The Alabama Supreme Court overturned Tulley’s conviction last year, as the right to carry was expanded after 2013’s sweeping gun referendum.
