A bill that would remove the requirement for citizens in Alabama to obtain a permit to conceal carry a firearm has passed a Senate Committee on a 6-4 vote.
Currently, in order to conceal a weapon on your person or to carry your weapon in an accessible place in a vehicle, Alabamians are required to possess a concealed carry permit that you obtain from your Sheriff.
An identical bill was sponsored by Allen and passed out of the committee last year but failed to pass through the legislature.
The bill now heads to the Alabama Senate for debate.
