Twenty-one states have Constitutional Carry law on the books (almost half of the country) which allows law abiding gun owners to carry a firearm without adding their names to a government database or be tracked like a criminal.
Here in Alabama, our republican Super majority is killing our chance to be the twenty-second state to pass Constitutional Carry by adding 2 harmful amendments to HB272. Both are meant to derail the bill as they detrimental to our freedom.
The House is refusing to accept the Senate’s harmful amendments, and so now the bill is being sent to a special conference committee. This commitee is comprised of 3 House Reps and 3 Senators. Whatever these 6 decide is what happens.
They have the power to remove amendments, add amendments or kill the bill entirely.
What’s worse, it’s all done in secret, and there is no record of who did what.
The Lt. Governor gets to pick 3 Senators and the House Speaker picks 3 Representatives. This is when leadership gets to decide the fate of Constitutional Carry, as those they pick will do exactly as they’re told.
The Lt. Governor and the Speaker of the House need to hear from you NOW! We need to insist that they instruct the committee to pass HB272 out of this conference committee without these harmful amendments!
Send this PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL to the Lt. Governor and the Speaker of the House now, demanding they do just that!
