Alabama: Doctors Cause Pro-Gun Bill to be Removed from House Calendar

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

Contact your state Representative and urge that HB 516 gets restored to the House Calendar

House Bill 516, gun owner privacy protection legislation, was scheduled to be considered by the Alabama House of Representatives yesterday, but was pulled from the calendar after doctors urged legislators to halt the bill.  HB 516 must pass the House TODAY to have any chance of being considered by the Alabama Senate this year. 

Sponsored by state Representative Micky Hammon (R-4), HB 516 would prohibit medical practitioners from requiring patients to divulge information about private firearm ownership.  HB 516 would also bar practitioners from denying medical care to patients who refuse to disclose such information about firearms, ammunition or storage methods.

Please contact your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to get HB 516 on the House calendar.  Contact information for your state Representative can be found by clicking here.
