As we reported on Friday, Alabama’s “permitless” carry measure is on the move.
Senate Bill 24 would eliminate the requirement to obtain a permit in order to carry a firearm for self-defense, enabling law-abiding citizens the right to carry in the manner that they choose without being burdened with government-imposed time delays and taxes. It also keeps the current permitting system in place for those who wish to take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states.
Use Your Power!
While the bill has momentum after passing the Senate, whether it continues to progress could depend on you. The House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee has scheduled a hearing at 9 a.m. today, and it’s imperative that Alabamans who value their firearm freedoms make their voices heard by emailing their committee members and urging them to support SB 24.
