No Infringing This Win

posted on July 28, 2015

A debate in Alabama over the legality of “no guns allowed” signs at rest stops along the state’s highways has been resolved. Gov. Robert Bentley agreed the signs were an infringement on gun owners’ rights and ordered the signs be removed on Friday.

Alabama is an open carry and concealed carry state, yet travelers pulling up to rest stops were still greeted with signs warning “no weapons beyond this point.” The Alabama Department of Transportation cited a state code that gives the agency power to “prescribe any reasonable rules and regulations so as to prevent unnecessary trespassing upon or injury to” state-funded roads as their justification, even though it contradicted state law.

“It seems like more and more, government tends to infringe on our right to bear arms,” said Republican state Rep. Barry Moore. “If anything, I think we need to be getting rid of gun-free zones, not creating more of them.”
