Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 6-4 in favor of House Bill 272, constitutional carry. It will now go to the full Senate, which will hold a floor vote tomorrow. Please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 272.
Constitutional carry strengthens Alabamians’ right to self-defense by allowing any law-abiding adult who is at least 21-years-old and legally eligible to obtain a carry permit, to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without red tape, delays, or fees. It does not change who is eligible to obtain a carry permit. It also does not affect previously issued permits, and allows citizens who still wish to obtain a permit in order to carry in other states recognizing Alabama’s permits, to do so.
Again, please contact your state senator immediately and ask them to SUPPORT HB 272.
Don’t forget to forward this email to your family, friends, and fellow gun owners, and ask them to email their senator also, respectfully urging them to SUPPORT HB 272. Alabama needs all its law-abiding gun-owners and Second Amendment supporters to help HB 272 continue to move through the legislative process to the Governor’s desk!
