    Thanks for letting us know about this. I have ALREADY written my state representative and expressed my opposition to these two bills.

    I thought it was already illigal, I was told that when I got my AL permit. Not legal in any state, or federal buliding that prohibits them which all schools do to my knowlage.

    Kachok, there is no prohibition on concealed carry permit holders carrying on school grounds at the present time.

    I hope every Alabamian on this forum will contact their elected rep and ask for a no vote. Below is a link to find your legislator. Would have posted this earlier and ask everyone to write, but we were on the way out the door when I posted this thread.http://www.legislature.state.al.us/misc/zipsearch.html

    No bill has been introduced YET. McCutcheon has done this
    I am fairly certain McCutcheon is in the minority on "goat hill".

    Currently in Alabama, it is only Illegal to carry a firearm onto school grounds, "... with intent to do bodily harm."
    In certain Counties/Cities the various Law Enforcement authorities are ignorant of the actual laws* pertaining to, and/or just openly hostile to Open Carry and will charge you with the catch-all of Disorderly Conduct.
    This has happened many many times and some have been tried and found guilty.
    * The actual laws/codes pertaining to Open Carry are very convoluted, confusing, conflicting and contradictory, which leads to much misinterpretation.
    The idea behind HB132 is to end all this^^^

    A 'pro gun' Republican. You have to watch all politicians. You don't want this law because we have this law in TN and it is a pain. It is one of the silliest laws to have to be hassled with for good people with licenses.

    Alabama's legislature is predominately Democrat but most of both parties are pro-gun(to be otherwise in the south can be political suicide). Most anti-gun legislation has a difficult time just getting out of committee much less getting to a vote.

    Is NRA-ILA aware of this? I haven't received any panic emails from them about this. This would be a gateway law to the "gun free zones" we here about in less free states. The next step is you can't drop your kid off in the car line with a gun in the car.

    I don't believe a bill has been introduced at the present time. If / when one is I would imagine the NRA-ILA would be all over it.
