Two Important Pro-Gun Measures Awaiting Consideration in Alabama

Friday, February 12, 2010

Two pro-gun bills are currently awaiting committee action and could reach the House floor as early as next week.  

House Bill 330
Alabama’s No-Net-Loss legislation, is currently on its third reading in the House Agriculture and Forestry Committee.  Sponsored by State Representative Craig Ford (D-28), HB330 would require that the state maintains at least the level of available public hunting land that currently exists.  It requires that additional lands be opened to hunting if land that is currently open to hunting is closed.  The end result is to ensure that current hunting opportunities will not diminish.

House Bill 364,
 also introduced by Representative Ford, would permit a law-abiding individual to store firearms in a locked motor vehicle while parked on a publicly accessible parking lot controlled by an employer or a business he or she frequents.  This bill will protect your right to keep a firearm in your car if you choose to hunt or shoot before or after work.  HB364 would also allow an individual to keep a firearm in a vehicle for self-defense during the commute to and from work.  HB364 is still pending action in the House Commerce Committee.  A vote is expected to take place on Wednesday, February 24.  

Please continue to contact your State Representative TODAY at (334) 242-7600 and respectfully urge him or her to support these important pieces of legislation.   Further contact information can be found by clicking
