Guns-to-Work Bill Passed in Alabama
John J. Coleman, III, Ronald D. “Scott” Williams and H. Carlton Hilson June 2013
On May 21, 2013, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley signed legislation that will expand Alabama gun rights in a number of ways. Most significantly, SB286 allows employees to store firearms in their personal vehicles in employer-owned parking lots under certain circumstances. The Alabama House of Representatives voted 73-28 on May 20, 2013, in approval of a conference committee version of the bill. The new law becomes effective on August 1, 2013.
