Alabama Open Carry Pioneers
While it's clear from numerous cases, rulings, and Attorney Generals of the legality of Open Carry in Alabama, changes are needed.
Clear, updated, precise legislation changes are needed to clear the fog and remove any doubts.
This list is a collection of changes that need to be made in order
to ensure we continue to have the ability to excercise our open carry
1) In clear language. Any person
MAY peaceably openly carry a firearm
loaded or unloaded, while on foot, or in public, or in a vehicle.
Repeal the prohibition of carry near or participating in a demonstration
(Violates the 2nd and 1st Amendments of the US constitution.)
Alabama a Shall issue State instead of a May issue State.
permit needed to openly or concealed carry while in a vehicle, my vehicle is
an extension of my home.
5) Ability to open carry and concealed
carry without fear of arbitrary harassment.
Disorderly Conduct law to read that a person cannot be charged with
disorderly conduct for merely open carrying and peaceably open carrying does
NOT cause public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm. Basically, disorderly
conduct can't be used as a "catch all".
7) No local government,
sheriff etc. can decide differently on state laws - no discretionary
8) Remove this, and any such wording on concealed carry
permits: "This pistol permit does not permit you to carry a gun openly."
9) Law Enforcement Officers and Dispatchers should be trained on open
carry calls that come in. Before even dispatching officers they should ask
questions and determine if further response is needed. Peaceably openly
carrying should not justify sending officers.
carrying does not permit illegal search & seizure. Nor does it grant the
right to revoke a concealed carry permit.
11) Alabama should
recognize ALL other States concealed carry permits.
12) Any person
peaceably, legally openly carrying shall not be harassed, detained,
incarcerated, refused service or otherwise have their rights violated for
merely openly carrying.
13) Remove 13a-11-52 from the code.
14) Law enforcement may NOT confiscate or run serial number checks for
peaceably open carrying. Nor can they demand a Social Security Number.
