Today, January 22nd, legislation was introduced in the Alabama Legislature to create a new lifetime carry permit for state residents. Please contact your lawmakers and urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 39 and Senate Bill 47.
House Bill 39, sponsored by Representative Proncey Robertson, and Senate Bill 47, sponsored by Senator Randy Price, will create a new statewide, uniform system to provide lifetime permits for qualified applicants at the cost of $200. For state residents over 65, the fee will drop to $150. HB 39 and SB 47 are companion bills and we need both measures passed to secure passage of this critical legislation.
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.
As law-abiding gun owners in Alabama know, we must make our voices heard loud and clear on these bills to get them 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.
It’s time to stand up for the right to self-defense and let your elected officials know that you want these measures passed in this session. Don’t let anyone take this important choice from you – make sure you use the “Take Action” button above to contact your lawmakers and let them know that you want the option of a lifetime permit!
