Alabama: House Passes Lifetime Carry Permit Bill

Gun Rights

Today, the House voted 69-18 to pass Senate Bill 308. It now goes to Governor Kay Ivey for her signature.

Senate Bill 308 creates a statewide, uniform system to provide optional lifetime carry permits for a cost of $300. The NRA was successful in adding a rebate clause in the Senate for anyone who is required by their sheriff to purchase a 1-year or 5-year permit prior to purchasing a lifetime permit. In most circumstances, that will bring the actual cost to $200.

Most aspects of the current permitting process will not change. Individuals interested in obtaining a lifetime permit will apply at their local sheriff’s office for a background check and to fill out the appropriate paperwork.

NRA thanks Representative Proncey Robertson, Speaker Mac McCutcheon, and Chairman Allen Treadaway for their efforts to bring SB 308 to a successful floor vote in the House quickly. Again, NRA also thanks author Senator Randy Price, Senate President Pro-Tem Greg Reed and Lieutenant Governor Will Ainsworth for their hard work gathering support behind this bill and moving it through the Senate.
