So if this becomes law, how do Alabamans carry in Georgia? It looks like there is no way to get a permit to carry in other states. Please direct me to the place in the bill I am missing if I am wrong.SB 24 passed the State Senate today, 25-6.
I don't think the bill repeals code 13A-11-75 regarding issuing a license.So if this becomes law, how do Alabamans carry in Georgia? It looks like there is no way to get a permit to carry in other states. Please direct me to the place in the bill I am missing if I am wrong.
This was simply not true in practice. Local issuing authorities were putting conditions on permits that effectively made a lot of places off limits, including restaurants, effectively using the word "may" to make up law as they went. Local municipalities also had various restrictions on certain places such as libraries, parks, all public buildings, etc...Ah, wow, I forgot Alabama added so many places off limits in exchange for shall issue. Good grief.
I think that was a bad trade off.
AL has non-permit open carry. Maybe losing their slush funds if the CC permit process goes away might be clouding their judgement? It's always more about the money than "public safety" issues if they weren't so hypocritical.http://wrbl.com/2017/04/26/law-enforcement-join-forces-to-protest-concealed-carry-bill/
