Ah, wow, I forgot Alabama added so many places off limits in exchange for shall issue. Good grief.

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.
I don't think the bill repeals code 13A-11-75 regarding issuing a license.

I think that was a bad trade off.
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...

These were done away with because the shall-issue law also strengthened state preemption as well to include time/place/manner as well as long guns, ammunition, and accessories. The previous preemption law covered only handguns. It was a small miracle that certain jurisdictions (Birmingham) did not discover this and go for a rifle ban or magazine ban.

Also, AL permits are NICS substitutes. Many use their permits for that purpose.
We need to get that in place for the Va State Police check that runs and includes NICS.
