Alabama Becomes 22nd Constitutional Carry State After Governor Signs New Bill Into Law

Alabama became state #22 to enact constitutional carry, or permitless carry, which removes the need for residents to obtain a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm.

“Unlike states who are doing everything in their power to make it harder for law-abiding citizens, Alabama is reaffirming our commitment to defending our Second Amendment rights,” Alabama Governor Kay Ivey said in a statement after signing the bill into law on Thursday. “I have always stood up for the rights of law-abiding gun owners, and I am proud to do that again today.”

Permitless carry does not allow prohibited persons from carrying firearms, as some believe. If a felon is found with a concealed firearm, they will still be arrested for illegal possession of that firearm.

Both Georgia and Ohio are up next.
