Attention Alabama Gun Owners: Big Business Trying to Strip You of Your Second Amendment Rights!

Monday, March 2, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

House Bill 362 and Senate Bill 407, sponsored by State Representative Craig Ford (D-28) and State Senator Roger Bedford (D-6), respectively, are currently pending in the House and Senate Judiciary Committees.  These cross-filed bills would protect your right to lawfully transport and store firearms in a privately-owned and locked motor vehicle while parked in publicly accessible parking lots controlled by your employer or a business you frequent. 

HB 362 and SB 407 are scheduled to be considered on Wednesday, March 11.

Last month, the Tenth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upheld an Oklahoma statute that protects the rights of employees to store firearms in locked vehicles in publicly accessible parking lots.  The proposed Alabama bill is very similar to the Oklahoma law and should withstand any similar challenges that might be launched.  Click

Our thanks go out to Representative Ford and Senator Bedford for their tireless efforts to preserve the Second Amendment in the state of Alabama.

Please contact the members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees TODAY and respectfully urge them to vote in favor of HB 362 and SB 407.  Contact information can be found below.
