NRA to back omnibus gun bill in 2013 legislative session

MONTGOMERY — The National Rifle Association wants to go beyond a workplace parking lot gun possession bill in the 2013 legislative session and will back an omnibus bill that would make other firearm law changes.

Sen. Paul Sanford, R-Huntsville, said Wednesday that he and Sen. Scott Beason, R-Gardendale, are working on a gun bill that would include workplace parking lot possession rights and a major change for sheriffs who issue pistol permits.

“Rather than have three or four competing gun bills, we’re just trying to have one bill that deals with several issues; the parking lot issue is one of them,” Sanford said.

The “parking lot bill” that has been sponsored several times would allow valid pistol permit holders to keep legal firearms locked up in their private vehicles while parked at their place of work.

The powerful Business Council of Alabama opposes that bill as a safety and private property rights issue.

Now, the Alabama Sheriff’s Association is opposing at least one possible change in pistol permit laws.
