Alabama AG Pushing Forward On Gun Owner Rights

posted on August 1, 2015

Hot on the heels of having gun prohibition signs removed from state highway rest areas, Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange has now moved to correct other situations where municipalities or other entities were wrongly prohibiting the legal carry of firearms.

After investigation by Luther, the town of Moulton removed signs from the Moulton Recreation Center and H.A. Alexander Park, where carry should not have been prohibited. And when the attorney general questioned a statement on Lawrence County carry permits saying carry was banned in the local courthouse, criminal justice building and any place that served alcohol, the sheriff reprinted the cards.

“Our constitutionally protected right to defend ourselves is under constant threat, in many cases by anti-gun bureaucrats or politicians who have overstepped their authority,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA-ILA. “Strange is putting all state bureaucrats and localities on notice that Alabama will not tolerate any violation of our right to keep and bear arms.”
