Alabama: NRA-Supported Omnibus Bill to be Heard in Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday

Friday, March 1, 2013

As previously reported, NRA-backed Senate Bill 129 was heard by the Senate Business and Labor Committee and referred to a Senate working committee.  After multiple working committee meetings with all interested parties, this bill was modified and now has a new bill number, Senate Bill 286.  Your NRA played an active role with this working committee to ensure that the main provisions of SB 129 remained intact in SB 286.

SB 286 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee where it will be heard on Tuesday, March 5 at 11:00 a.m.  SB 286 seeks to restore and protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners in Alabama by addressing the following issues:

  • No employer may prohibit the otherwise lawful possession, transportation or storage of firearms or ammunition that is kept out of sight within a locked or attended private vehicle of an invitee who is otherwise permitted to operate or park that vehicle on the property.
  • Repeals the requirement to obtain a pistol permit to carry a pistol in a vehicle.
  • Shifts the current “May Issue” concealed carry permit system to a “Shall Issue” permit system and requires that a sheriff must issue the carry permit within thirty days as long as the person applying for the permit is not prohibited from possessing a firearm under federal law.
  • A permit to carry a concealed pistol shall be good for one to five years (decided by the person seeking the carry permit).
  • Requires sheriffs shall to use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to conduct a background check on concealed pistol permit applicants.
  • Allows for all other valid state-issued permits to carry a concealed firearm to be recognized in Alabama.
  • Strengthens Alabama’s firearms preemption statute by reserving for the state legislature complete control over regulation and policy relating to firearms, ammunition and firearm accessories in order to ensure that such regulation is applied uniformly throughout the state.

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and encourage them to support this pro-gun reform on Tuesday, March 5.
