Alabama: Senate Committee Passes Constitutional/Permitless Carry Legislation

Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed Senate Bill 24 by a 6-3 vote.  Sponsored by state Senator Gerald Allen (R-21), SB 24 would enable a law-abiding adult to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense without a government-issued permit.  SB 24 now heads to the Senate floor where it will await full consideration.  Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to support this important self-defense legislation.

Senate Bill 24 recognizes an individual’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes. 

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 24 when it comes up for a vote.
