Alabama: Two Pro-Gun Bills Pending Consideration

Friday, March 12, 2010

Two important pro-gun bills are awaiting consideration in Alabama

As we reported last week,
House Bill 2 is still pending action in the Senate. 

Sponsored by State Representative Jeremy Oden (R-11), HB2 would repeal the section of the Alabama statute that prohibits the possession, sale, receipt, or use of short barreled rifles and shotguns.  These firearms are already legal under federal law when properly registered.

Please contact your State Senator TODAY at (334) 242-7800 and respectfully urge him or her to support HB2.  Contact information for your Senator can be found
here

Also, the Alabama State House Commerce Committee canceled its meeting Wednesday because Chairman Frank McDaniel fell ill.  NRA would like to extend well wishes to the Chairman for a speedy recovery.  As a result of the canceled committee meeting, Senate Bill 360 (the companion bill to House Bill 364) will be heard following the spring recess, which starts on Monday, March 15.  This bill passed the Senate last week by a vote of 26 to 2. 

Introduced by State Senator Roger Bedford (D-6), SB360 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 that he or she frequents.  This legislation would protect your right to keep a firearm in your car for self-defense, hunting, or target shooting before or after work.

Please continue to contact the members of the House Commerce Committee and respectfully urge them to support SB360 and pass it out of committee.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
