Important Second Amendment Legislation Needs Help in Alabama!

Friday, April 11, 2008

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!

The Alabama State Legislature has been discussing numerous pro-gun bills in the past weeks.   These bills are crucial to protecting the Second Amendment and hunting rights of gun owners and sportsmen in Alabama.  

House Bill 339, “Emergency Powers” legislation sponsored by State Representative Marc Keahey (D-65), would protect our Second Amendment rights by prohibiting any government agency from confiscating or regulating the lawful sale, possession, transfer, transport and carry of firearms during a state of emergency, such as occurred in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. HB339 is currently in the House Judiciary Committee and expected to have its third reading in the near future.

House Bill 512, “Worker Protection” legislation sponsored by State Representative David Grimes (R-73), would ensure that employees are able to protect themselves as they travel to and from work by allowing them to store their firearms in their locked vehicles while parked on an employer’s publicly accessible parking lot. HB512 is currently in the House Judiciary Committee pending a second reading.

House Bill 700, “Handgun Permit Confidentiality” legislation sponsored by State Representative Jack Page (D-29), would restrict public access to the records of concealed handgun permit holders and prohibit their publication. HB700 is currently in the House Judiciary Committee pending a third reading.  

Senate Bill 156, sponsored by State Senator Rusty Glover (R-34), would create a special disabled person's hunting license available for $1 during the period of total disability. SB156 is currently in the Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee.   

Senate Bill 484, “No Net Loss” legislation sponsored by State Senator Lowell Barron (D-08), would require the State of Alabama to have a base line number of public hunting acres that are always open to hunting, guaranteeing that future generations have the same hunting opportunities that are enjoyed today.  SB484 passed out of committee on Thursday, April 3 and has been placed on the Senate Calendar. 

It is important that you contact your State Legislators in support HB339, HB512, HB700, SB156, and SB484 today!
