Alabama is one of the states in the US that allows citizens to carry firearms and guns, and to use them in self-defense, or for the defense of the state. The state is an ‘open carry’ state. This means that adult citizens can openly carry a firearm without the need to get a permit from the sheriff or other authorities. Here are details about Alabama Gun carry law:

Not all adults are allowed to carry guns. Drug offenders, as one example, are not allowed to carry firearms.

There are certain restrictions to the open carry law as well; a gun cannot be openly carried in a vehicle. If a person wishes to carry a concealed handgun, a permit needs to be obtained from the local Sheriff’s office. This makes Alabama a ‘shall issue’ state. Recently, in April 2017, the Alabama Senate voted for the approval of a legislation that would (if passed as a law) allow citizens to carry concealed handguns without the need of a permit. If passed, this law will add Alabama to the list of 11 other US states which allow people to carry concealed firearms without a permit.
