Wrap-Up of Pending Alabama Pro-Gun Legislation!

Thursday, May 22, 2008

Thank You for Your Help This Legislative Session!

On Tuesday, May 20, the Alabama State Legislature adjourned its 2008 Regular Session without passing any Right-to-Carry reform measures.

The Legislature had been discussing numerous pro-gun bills that were crucial to protecting the Second Amendment and hunting rights of Alabama’s gun owners and sportsmen.  Because of an all-day filibuster on the budget in the Senate, pro-gun legislation never had an opportunity to come to the floor for a vote.  In response to the Senate’s inaction, the House decided to only pass five general bills from the special calendar, none of which were firearm or hunting-related. 

The following pro-gun measures were ignored on the final day of the session by the Legislature:

  • House Bill 339, sponsored by State Representative Marc Keahey (D-65), would have protected 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;
  • House Bill 700, introduced by State Representative Jack Page (D-29), would have restricted public access to the records of concealed handgun permit holders and prohibit their publication;
  • House Bill 512, sponsored by State Representative David Grimes (R-73), would have ensured 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; 
  • Senate Bill 156, introduced by State Senator Rusty Glover (R-34), would have created a special disabled person's hunting license available for $1 during the period of total disability; and, 
  • Senate Bill 484, sponsored by State Senator Lowell Barron (D-08), would have required 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.

Thank you to all NRA members for contacting your State Legislators this session in support of all NRA-backed bills.  Please continue to check www.NRAILA.org and your e-mail for updates throughout the year.
