MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Gov. Kay Ivey passed House Bill 272 into law on Thursday, March 10.

This bill is also known as the constitutional carry bill as it defends Alabamians’ Second Amendment rights.

Rep. Shane Stringer (R) sponsored the bill, and it revises certain restrictions regarding the carrying or possession of a pistol as well as eliminates the requirement to obtain a pistol permit in order to carry a concealed pistol.

“Unlike states who are doing everything in their power to make it harder for law abiding citizens,” said Gov. Ivey, “Alabama is reaffirming our commitment to defending our Second Amendment rights. I have always stood up for the rights of law abiding gunowners, and I am proud to do that again today.”
