Tomorrow, the Alabama Legislature will resume legislative activity following its spring recess. Senate Bill 14 and Senate Bill 304 remain on the third reading calendar in the Alabama Senate. With about a month remaining in the 2016 Regular Session, it is imperative that these important pro-gun reforms receive prompt consideration in both chambers.

Senate Bill 14 is important legislation that would recognize a law-abiding gun owner’s ability to possess a concealed handgun in a vehicle without first obtaining a government-issued permit. A majority of states already allow law-abiding gun owners to carry a loaded handgun in their vehicle for self-defense without government-mandated permitting and taxation. If an individual can lawfully own and possess a firearm, they should not have restrictions placed on their ability to exercise their fundamental right to self-defense outside of their home and in their vehicle.

Senate Bill 304 seeks to solve a disparity in concealed weapon license (CWL) fees between counties. SB 304 will accomplish this fix by allowing law-abiding individuals to apply for a permit in any county in the state.
