AL: Concealed-carry bill holstered for now

When it comes to regulating firearms, Alabama really doesn’t have much common sense.

This week, there was a spark, albeit a small one, in the Senate Tourism Committee. The committee rejected a bill, sponsored by Sen. Gerald Allen, R-Tuscaloosa, that would have allowed residents to carry concealed weapons legally without a permit.

This was a bad idea from the outset, but the gun culture in Alabama loved it. No longer would the gun lovers have to pay their local sheriff for a carry permit. While the fee for the permit isn’t prohibitive, the supporters of so-called “constitutional carry” believe their right to carry and hide their weapons is covered under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Constitutional Rights are to be served by the state, not suppressed by it. No law abiding citizen should be charged a license fee for, and taxed by the State, in order to exercise a Freedom granted by the Federal Constitution.

This bill would only remove the burden of paying a fee to obtain a license to carry. It does not grant carry privileges to prohibited persons that in many cases ignore the law and carry guns anyway.

Constitutional carry has not been a problem in any of the 12 or so states that have already passed it and it would not be a problem in Alabama.

According to this schmoe, rights are only rights if the government ALLOWS them to be.

A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away. — BARRY GOLDWATER (1964)
