    First of all I would like to thank you guys for this site it is great.

    My wife is a Magistrate for a local municipality and has tried to tell me that open carry is not legal in Alabama. Only on your own property and not on "property not your own".

    She read this from Alabama gun laws of some state law code don't know the statute yet. Just curious as to what you guys thought. I have read the Alabama section on this site and it seems pretty self explanatory to me. Seems like an interpretation thing to me. Even some LEO have responded somewhat negatively about OC in Alabama.



    Thanks Guys and Gals.

    She is referring to 13A-11-52. That section was superseded by 13A-11-73 which forbids concealed carry. There are AG opinions and case law which support open carry, most of which are summed up here: http://alabamagunrights.org/wp-conte...2/tri-fold.pdf

    Check out the Alabama sub-forum for good times and great people.

    There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall away, mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting. I've done the math enough to know the dangers of our second guessing. Doomed to crumble, unless we grow and strengthen our communication. -Tool, "Schism"

    Welcome. Ask your wife to read the "This law seems to prohibit a lot of OC" thread in the Alabama forum.

    Where in Alabama are you?

    If you put that info in your profile, it will show up to the left of your posts. A lot of times, the answer to your questions depend on where you are, so that information is helpful to see when we read your posts.

    Just a suggestion.

    Enjoy the fellowship here.
