While exchanging emails with the owner of a local range, he replied to a statement I had made about OC by saying that it is illegal in Alabama. When I questioned this, he pointed out to me a passage in the code that says:
License to carry pistol in vehicle or concealed on person - Required. No person shall carry a pistol in any vehicle or concealed on or
about his person, except on his land, in his own abode or fixed place of business, without a license therefor as hereinafter provided.
He then proceeded to tell me that the 'or' he had highlighted prohibited OC in the state of Alabama. That this was what he had been taught as a LEO, and that this was the law that is currently enforced.
I have sent him a reply explaining, politely, that that's not how English works and also referencing him to the AAG opinion c. 1984 on the subject. While I await his response, I just want to see whether the good people of OCDO think this argument holds water.
Edit: Added a much needed space.
