While Alabama has advanced a permitless carry bill for the first time ever from a house committee, permitless carry bills are also making progress over in Louisiana. Yesterday, the Louisiana Senate passed Senate Bill 118. Today, the Louisiana House Criminal Justice Committee is hearing two different permitless carry bills.
With these bills moving, both Louisiana and Alabama have the opportunity to become the 21st state to recognize a law-abiding adult’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense without having to first apply for government permission. Will Alabama take this spot or will it be left behind as other states protect and advance Second Amendment rights?
Please contact your state representative and remind them to SUPPORT Alabama House Bill 405.
