Senate to vote on repealing pistol permit requirement


MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) — The Alabama Senate will vote on legislation that would allow people to carry a concealed handgun without a permit.

Some law enforcement officers are critical of the bill, saying that permits are necessary for public safety.

The bill’s sponsor, Senator Gerald Allen, says people should not have to pay to exercise their second amendment rights.
