Vote in the Alabama state House

There are now 22 Constitutional Carry states. Very soon with Georgia, Indiana, and Ohio having high probabilities of passing similar laws and possibly Nebraska, the United States is on track for having 25 states. The vote in the Alabama state House today on approving the conference report was 70-to-29 (71%-to-29%). The Alabama state Senate vote was 24-to-6 (80%-to-20%).

Governor Kay Ivey on Thursday signed House Bill 272, known as the constitutional carry bill, into law, defending law abiding Alabamians’ Second Amendment rights.

“Unlike states who are doing everything in their power to make it harder for law abiding citizens, Alabama is reaffirming our commitment to defending our Second Amendment rights,” said Governor Ivey. “I have always stood up for the rights of law abiding gunowners, and I am proud to do that again today.”
