Alabama: Senate Committee Hearing on Lifetime Carry Permit Bill
On February 26th, the Senate Committee on Judiciary will hear Senate Bill 47 to create a new lifetime carry permit. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT SB 47.
Senate Bill 47, sponsored by Senator Randy Price, creates a new statewide, uniform system to provide lifetime permits for qualified applicants at a cost of $200. For state residents over 65, the fee drops to $150.
Most aspects of the current permitting process will not change. Individuals interested in obtaining a lifetime permit will apply at their local sheriff’s office for a background check and to fill out the appropriate paperwork.
Lifetime permits are something that citizens in other states enjoy – there’s no reason we can’t have this option in Alabama!
We must make our voices heard loud and clear on this bill to get it passed. This is an important change to the existing permitting system that will give law-abiding gun owners the option of deciding which route is best suited for their individual self-defense needs. This choice should be yours!
It’s time to stand up for the right to self-defense and let your elected officials know that you want this measure passed this session.
Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT SB 47.
