Alabama: Lifetime Permit Bill Moves to Senate Floor

On March 5th, the Senate Committee on Judiciary voted to pass Senate Bill 47 to create a new lifetime carry permit.  It now goes to the Senate floor for consideration.  Please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT SB 47. 

Senate Bill 47, sponsored by Senator Randy Price, creates a new statewide, uniform system to provide lifetime permits for qualified applicants at a cost of $200.  For state residents over 65, the fee drops to $150.

Don’t listen to the “fake news” being pushed by opponents of this bill.  Most aspects of the current permitting process will not change.  The application for the lifetime permit will collect the exact same information as the current permit.  Also, like current permits, it will not be an endorsement on your driver’s licenses or visible to anyone outside of Alabama.  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.

Don’t let them take this option from you!  Press the “Take Action” button now to let your senator know that you want SB 47 to pass.

We must make our voices heard loud and clear on this bill to get it passed.  This is an important change to the existing permitting system that will give law-abiding gun owners the option of deciding which route is best suited for their individual self-defense needs.  This choice should be yours!

It’s time to stand up for the right to self-defense and let your elected officials know that you want this measure passed this session.

Again, please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT SB 47.
