Alabama lawmaker wants to repeal pistol permit requirement

By Mike Cason

An Alabama lawmaker wants to repeal the requirement for a permit to carry a concealed handgun.

Sen. Gerald Allen, R-Tuscaloosa, has pre-filed a bill to end a requirement that he said is an improper limit on the constitutional right to bear arms, according to a news release.

"It's time we give our citizens the right to bear arms without first seeking the government's permission," Allen said.

Alabama already allows people to openly carry a holstered pistol without a permit. Allen said there is no logical reason to continue the permit requirement for carrying a concealed pistol.

The proposal goes further than a gun bill Allen has sponsored for several years, without success.
