Alabama Public Housing Authority To Disarm At-Risk Residents

posted on September 15, 2016

In the aftermath of a shootout on Sunday night that left one dead and three more injured, the Housing Authority of the Birmingham District (HABD) has concluded that the best response is to simply ban guns for all of the law-abiding residents. 

HABD operates 14 public housing sites with 5,000 units, and they also oversee Section 8 housing. But now residents living in these areas—some of the most at-risk areas of the city—will be left disarmed and defenseless, while criminals, who don’t follow laws, will simply keep their guns. 

Housing authorities that attempt to deny residents their fundamental Second Amendment rights—no matter how unconstitutional—are nothing new. It wasn’t too long ago that Josephine Byrd took on the Wilmington Housing Authority and saw the Delaware Supreme Court unanimously rule in her favor. Learn more about her story here

HABD would do well to pay close attention to Byrd’s story. Taking away the constitutional liberties of the law-abiding is not the solution to violent crime.
