Recently, several members have brought to our attention a matter of concern in the City of Huntsville, Alabama. They have indicated the presence of several signs, which read in part that it is unlawful to “possess firearms” on most of the major greenways including, the Aldridge Creek Greenway and the Big Cove Creek Greenway. According to state law, the regulation of firearms is entirely reserved to the Alabama State Legislature. These signs not only violate state law, but are a blatant attack on your Second Amendment rights. According to the City of Huntsville, it would be illegal for you to posess a firearm in your vehicle while on these greenways.
Please contact the members of the Huntsville City Council at (256) 427-5011 or by e-mail and urge them to remove the language pertaining to the posession of firearms from all of the signs on greenways throughout the city.
