Alabama Constitutional Carry Bill Sent to Governor Ivey: March 10 2022

Alabama Constitutional Carry Bill Sent to Governor Ivey: March 10 2022

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)-— The Alabama legislature has sent the Constitutional Carry bill (permitless carry), HB272, as amended by the Senate, to Governor Ivey at 3:05 p.m. on March 10, 2022.

The bill from the Senate was accepted by the House with a vote of 70 to 29. The Senate concurred 24 to 6.

This correspondent expects Governor Ivey to sign the bill, making Alabama the 22, 23, or 24th state to restore Constitutional carry.

Governor Ivey has a primary coming up on May 24, 2022. With a vote in the house of 70%, and in the Senate of 80%, it would be foolish for Governor Ivey to veto HB 272.

In Alabama, if the governor vetoes a bill, a majority vote is required in each house to override the veto. If the governor does nothing, the bill becomes law after six days, not counting Sundays.

Constitutional Carry on the Move Acros USA

In Ohio, SB 215 has passed the legislature and is headed to the Governor for signature.

It seems likely Governor DeWine will sign the bill.

In Indiana, the legislature has passed HB 1296, a Constitutional Carry bill. It is the latest iteration from a complicated political process to bypass a hostile committee RINO-Republican Chair.  It will soon be sent to Governor Holcomb

. I expect HB 1296 to become law because Indiana has a very weak veto system. A governor’s veto is easily overridden.

In Georgia, the bill has passed the Senate, with a strong assist from Governor Kemp. It has passed the House Committee.

If it passes the House, Governor Kemp is near certain to sign it.

It is a race to see if Ohio, Alabama, or Indiana will be the next state to enact Constitutional Carry.

The decision is now up to the governors of the three states. As of this writing, confidential sources have informed this correspondent, that Governor Mike DeWine will sign the bill, in part to aid in his primary election. He has not yet received SB 215.

Governor Holcomb of Indiana is said to be hostile to Constitutional Carry. He has not made any official statements saying he would veto HB 1296. The bill has not yet been sent to him. After he receives the bill, if he does nothing, the bill becomes law in seven days.

The members of the Constitutional Carry (no permit required) club consisted of 21 states at the end of 2021. Those states are:

(note the lack of Democrat stronghold states with the highest crime rates)

Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

The club is about to expand. It may become 24 states by the end of March 2022!

Georgia could make that number 25 in short order.

With over 21 states restoring Constitutional Carry, Constitutional Carry becomes the preferred method of dealing with the Second Amendment and state constitutional amendments for the right to keep and bear arms.  When 25 states have restored Constitutional Carry, half of the states will use this method.

Supreme Court justices read the media. The states have shown Constitutional Carry does not harm public safety. It is what state legislators have done to honor the right to keep and bear arms. It may have a positive effect on the justices as the opinion in the New York Rifle & Pistol Association case is before the court. In it, the justices have an opportunity to address whether the right to bear arms means more than the ability to carry a rifle from one room in the home to another.

The opinion is expected to be released in June of this year.

If the past is any indication of what the future may hold for Americans I suspect there will be no violence from the right until Biden comes after the guns which he has promised to do. Then sadly there absolutely WILL be violence! There is little doubt Biden realizes he must do that in order to successfully install the Obama promised fundamental transformation, mostly because that transformation will require force, into a socialist communist country. He however, will never succeed! Many years ago Arizona was rapidly becoming the kidnap carjack capital of America. Something had to be done. Consequently both houses of congress overwhelmingly… Read more »

Now Arizona has to lose the “gun free” zones and stop cops from enforcing unconstitutional laws and murdering civilians.

HLB

Some Cops are good, some are bad. Some of us are good, some bad. The difference is that I do not have the support they do – so that puts me at an unethical disadvantage. If it were just one-on-one, and that person’s dollar against my dollar, I would not have any problems with the current situation. It would be revealing to list and discuss the support bias that, not only cops, but other government employees, have – from our actual experience. I have spent a lot of money and time to turn around wrongful government actions. I have many… Read more »

What he meant to say without being verbose is that other states like Indiana have ConCarry bills in the docket. They could have come before if they hadn’t had delays in the last couple days, hence the “23rd or 24th” part. I’ll be very happy to see 50% of states have ConCarry, but I’ll be in heaven if we get 38! Think about it… three fourths of states is the number of states that it takes to pass an amendment. It may be possible that if we get to 38 with ConCarry, A supermajority of states can force the feds… Read more »

It would have to come from congress unless it comes out of CoS. Beware the CoS. Moreover, it’s not Con Carry.

Henry Bowman

When I say ConCarry, I mean Constitutional Carry, just an abbreviation that I’ve seen others use on other gun forums.

I am acutely aware of the dangers of the CoS. I pray those politicians NEVER get their wish!

Russn8r

Yep. That’s what I mean by ConCarry too. But it’s not Constitutional Carry. It’s Permitless Carry. It’s not ConCarry when we can’t carry where we did in 1789-92. “Gun Free” zones infringe rkba, 9A, 10A & 14A. Therefore it’s not ConCarry. ConCarry is nice marketing, but it’s deceptive.

Excellent memes, brother! Carry On.

My definition of ConCarry is no permits, no ‘gun free zones’, full Right to keep & bear anytime, anywhere, in any way, be it pistol or rifle. You can call it permitless, but to me it’s all the same.

If someone else is defining ConCarry in any way that infringes 2A, they are wrong and can “Kiss my Glock”!

CoS is the biggest reason I don’t trust Mark Levin. 2nd biggest, pards with LDS Drama Queen Glenn Beck.

Russn8r

Looks like the WB/Blue sock pup posse’s butthurt over the Glenn Beck-Mark Levin comment. LOL

Henry Bowman

Hahaha!!

HLB

That would be exciting. As Russn8r mentions however, a Convention of States could be very dangerous.

HLB

Russn8r

CoS is a honey trap. Bad juju. Can’t believe anyone would trust today’s politicians with it, or even today’s Blue-Light Federalist Society wing of the Supreme Court, let alone the commie wing.

Henry Bowman

I totally concur! I’ve been sounding the alarm on the CoS for quite some time! People are so desperate for a peaceful solution that they’re grasping at straws. We need to look at the big picture!

Russn8r

Yep. Figgered as much.

Henry Bowman

Trolls are back. Upvoted ya.

Russn8r

Appears the WildBLUE sock pup dv posse has a new tactic. Can you tell what it is? What a crybaby.

Oldvet is one too… Trying to look like Oldman.

WildBlueTEXOldvetman. What a sad life, living in a chatroom for fake upvotes & downvotes.

Henry Bowman

You triggered him again. Good work!

Russn8r

Yep. Over the target… Ah. Their punch don’t taste so good no more. Very satisfying.

swmft

do you think these are people who work a 24/48 shift pattern?

Henry Bowman

Don’t know, don’t care. Lurkers & Trolls can keep whatever hours they please, or whatever hours Bloomturd tells them to work.

HLB

This is great, but what does “Constitutional Carry” really mean? Why don’t they call it what it is? Why does this verbiage persist when it is a misnomer? What constitution allows such false language?

HLB

Don

Well what should it be called?

Russn8r

It should be called Permitless Carry.

How many “gun free” zones existed in 1789-92? It’s not Con Carry.

HLB

Well, it is legislative concealed carry. While many state constitutions allow and prohibit some forms of carry, they do so in a constitutional framework and that content has changed little. The US Constitution has not changed the 2nd Amendment ever, it is still has the same meaning, only the Federal legislation has changed. Legislation is not the big dog.

HLB

Arizona Don

So what exactly do you think it should be called and what do you think it is?

Russn8r

As I told someone’s sock puppet above, it’s Permitless Carry. How many “gun free” zones existed in 1789-92? It’s not Con Carry.

Green Mtn. Boy

Alabama Welcome to the Free states of America.

Congratulations!!!! I as a CONCERNED American Citizen am glad to hear these CLEAR HEADED States have READOPTED Constitutional Carry as it was INTENDED! A LAW ABIDING American HAS the RIGHT to DEFEND against TYRANTS and WANTON KILLERS!

Cheers for AL. Here in VA we still have the Senate occupied by commies. We will have to wait until 2023 to retake the Senate. I’m still not convinced that Youngkin isn’t Romney lite. He at least makes noises like he is pro 2A. Hopefully VA will one day soon join the CC community.
