U.S.A. -( The Senate is taking swift action on constitutional carry as they previously promised. On Wednesday, at 1:00 PM, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear House Bill 272. After that, it will receive a final vote on the Senate floor on Thursday. 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!

I really wish gun groups, organizations, or whatever would stop calling these bills “constitutional carry”. They’re permitless carry, at best, and only for those the government grants their blessing to. Every state still has massive amounts of restrictions on who can carry, what they can carry, when they can carry, and where they can carry. The constitutional thing would be for states to repeal all of their arms laws and actually come to the defense of their citizens against the feds.


Yep. How many “gun free” zones were there in 1789-92? “ConCarry” states like TX & FL are riddled with them.

Dogmatic “libertarians” say it’s wrong to ban GFZs declared by “private” firms open to the public, like Pulse Nightclub in Orlando & El Cielo Mall in El Paso. Result: Over 70 dead. It’s no more “wrong” than banning restaurants from serving rancid food & rat poo.

Contacting your state senator is a good idea but realize state senators listen to enforcers more than they listen to you. Therefore, make sure you call: Bobby Timmons (334) 264-7827 He’s a big part of the problem. “the Alabama Sheriff’s Association spoke out Tuesday against the ‘permit-less carry’ legislation that lawmakers are set to vote on this session.” “Sheriffs from many counties across the state gathered on the steps of the statehouse to voice frustrations surrounding the bill in this year’s regular session. Many of them concerned about the increasing crime rates in their counties and the potential for the… Read more »


Was I not supposed to shine light on this “isolated incident?”

All you quiet good apples better get out there and speak out against the “just a few bad apples.” Times are a changin’.

You’re going to wake up one morning and say “why do the good ‘civilians’ not like us?”
