Alabama: Time Running Out to Pass Pro-Gun Reform Bill!

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Please Contact Your State Senator TODAY!

 

On Thursday, May 14, the Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on House Bill 362, Alabama’s Worker Protection Bill.  If it passes out of the Judiciary Committee, it would then move to the Senate Floor for a vote on, Friday, May 15 (the last day of session.)

 

HB 362, sponsored by State Representative Craig Ford (D-28), 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.  Thanks to your efforts, HB 362 passed the House on Tuesday, May 5 without any restricting amendments.  Unfortunately, big business lobbyists for the railroad and power companies and trial lawyers continue to actively lobby against HB 362. They are offering weakening amendments that will place restrictions on the rights of law-abiding gun owners. 

 

It is critical that you contact your Alabama State Senator immediately at (334) 242-7800 and respectfully urge him or her to vote in support of HB 362 with NO exempting amendments.  Tell your State Senator not to let big business take away our Second Amendment Rights.  It is also important that we thank the State Senate sponsor, State Senator Roger Bedford (D-6), for his continued work and support of this important piece of pro-gun legislation.   

 

We also ask that you contact your State Senator not only in support of HB 362, but in support of HB 225, Emergency Powers legislation sponsored by State Representative Marc Keahey (D-65), HB 432, Permit Confidentiality legislation sponsored by State Representative Jack Page (D-29), and HB 596, Short Barreled Rifle legislation sponsored by State Representative Jeremy Oden (R-11).  These pro-gun bills are expected to be voted on by the Senate as early as Thursday, May 14.
