Constitutional Carry on Gov. Kay Ivey’s Desk

Mar 10, 2022

Montgomery, AL – House Bill 272, Alabama’s Constitutional Carry bill, passed successfully out of conference committee which removed anti-gun amendments that put passage of the bill in danger. It will now head to the desk of Governor Kay Ivey for her signature.

“This is a great day for gun owners in Alabama as their constitutional right to bear arms without government infringement will soon be restored,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “And it’s thanks in part to the tireless work of National Association for Gun Rights members in Alabama lobbying their lawmakers – demanding Alabama become the next Constitutional Carry state.”

The National Association for Gun Rights worked with several lawmakers including State Representatives Shane Stringer and Andrew Sorrell to get Constitutional Carry filed in the Alabama Legislature.

“It’s incredible to see all the hard work of grassroots gun activists and pro-gun lawmakers come to fruition and make Constitutional Carry a reality,” said DJ Parten, Direction of Legislation for the National Association for Gun Rights in Alabama. “As a born and raised Alabamian, I am excited to see our rights restored and proud to have worked alongside law-abiding gun owners to get this bill on Gov. Ivey’s desk.”

Constitutional Carry is the straightforward concept that if you are legally allowed to possess a handgun, you should be able to carry that handgun openly or concealed without having to obtain a government permit, or pay a tax to do so.

Alabama joins Indiana and Ohio in passing Constitutional Carry during the 2022 legislative cycle.

The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
