“Permitless” Carry Measure Passes Out Of Committee In Alabama

posted on March 3, 2017

On Tuesday, the Alabama Senate Judiciary Committee approve Senate Bill 24, sending the measure to the Senate floor for consideration by the full Senate.

SB 24, sponsored by Republican state Sen. Gerald Allen, would enable a law-abiding adult to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense without first obtaining a government-issued permit.

As NRA-ILA has stated, such legislation recognizes an individual’s unconditional right to keep and bear arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses. Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate. Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.
