  • On May 21, 2013, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley signed legislation that will expand Alabama gun rights in a number of ways. Most significantly, SB286 allows employees to store firearms in their personal vehicles in employer-owned parking lots under certain circumstances. The Alabama House of Representatives voted 73-28 on May 20, 2013, in approval of a conference committee version of the bill. The new law becomes effective on August 1, 2013.
