Ok here are my questions. They all refer to me specifically and my specific situation. I am not asking if everyone can do these things. I will provide as much background info as a i can after i ask the questions.
1. Can i legally open carry?
2. Can i legally posses an AL pistol permit?
3. Can i reside in more than one state as a member of the armed forces while stationed in AL?
4. Do i have to pay taxes in AL if i want the answer to questions 1, and 2 to be yes?
Any references to your answers would be very appreciated.
Here are things that tie my residency to AL.
I am active duty army stationed at redstone arsenal AL. I have an AL drivers licence ( a LEO at the DMV informed me that if i owned a home here and worked here i can get an AL drivers licence ). I have an AL issued pistol permit ( the sheriffs office informed me that if i own a home here and posses a AL drivers licence i could get one)
Things that tie my residency to CA.
In the army to change your residency you must change your home of record. Mine is listed as CA. I pay state taxes to CA (its cheaper than AL).
I do not want to change my residency from CA if i dont have to because of tax reasons. I plan on going to see the legal office on base to ask them (they probably know less than i do about this).
The problem i am having is that AL LEOs are telling me i can have a DL and Permit here because i am a resident by definition, but i am also a resident of CA.
Thank you for your help.
