MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Alabama Senate approved a bill Thursday to allow law-abiding citizens to carry loaded handguns in their vehicles without the need to pay for a concealed carry permit, calling it a measure to “strengthen the 2nd Amendment rights of Alabama citizens.”

“No one is required to have a permit to keep a handgun in his or her house. The Castle Doctrine states vehicles are an extension of a person’s home,” said Senator Gerald Allen (R-Tuscaloosa), the bill’s sponsor. “Therefore, adults should have the right to carry a pistol in their car without a permit.”

Only four members of the Senate voted against the measure, all Democrats.

The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.
