This just in from GOA:
On March 19, the Alabama Senate passed a bill that would allow gun owners to carry a loaded pistol in their vehicle without a permit.
The bill (SB 354) was introduced by pro-gun Senator Scott Beason (R-Gardendale), who introduced the bill at the request of a local grassroots gun rights group, BamaCarry, Inc.
While the passage of this bill in the state senate is exciting news, there is still much work to be done, if we are going to get the bill passed in the Alabama House. This vehicle carry bill is stuck in committee right now, and so we need a myriad of calls to help get the bill moving.
According to BamaCarry, “The legislative session only has a few days left. If we don’t put pressure on these representatives to take up the bill, the clock will run out on this opportunity to advance gun rights in the State of Alabama.”
ACTION: Please contact the Chair of the Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee, as well as the other committee members. Urge them to get this bill placed on the calendar and passed. The committee is scheduled to meet at 12 on Tuesday.
