Alabama’s Handgun Laws and Constitutional Rights

Alabama’s Handgun Laws and Constitutional Rights

Several Supreme Court cases have upheld the individual right to possess and carry firearms. Aspects of Maryland’s handgun regulations, nearly exact to those of Alabama, were recently declared unconstitutional by a federal district judge. The current Code of Alabama’s regulations regarding the right to carry a concealed weapon may infringe upon rights protected under the 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution.
