AL Weapons Law: http://www.ago.state.al.us/Page-Alabama-Weapon-Law
AL has always been open carry. With the passage of SB286 last summer, OC was strengthened by the fact that OC did not constitute Disorderly Conduct, something that some LEO's tried since they couldn't find anything else to charge OCers with.
CCW required for CC or to carry while in a vehicle (open or concealed). There's a bill right now trying to get rid of the vehicle carry license requirements but I'm not convinced it's going to make it since the CCW permitting process in AL is handled by the county sheriffs and all the permit $$$ go into their general fund to spend as they see fit. They're not gonna let that gravy train go without a major fight. http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_8_31/55...arry.htmlhttp:
