State Sen. Roger Bedford, D-Russellville, will try again in the 2013 legislative session to pass a bill to allow that would permit Alabamians to keep their firearms locked in their vehicles while at work. At the present time, private businesses can prohibit employees from bringing firearms on company property, even if the guns stay locked in their vehicles.
Our hero Roger declared, “That is wrong, I think it is an infringement on the constitutional right and safety of legal gun owners.” State Rep. Craig Ford, D-Gadsden, is sponsoring the same bill in the House.
The legislation would also provide limited immunity for employers and property owners for any damages, injuries, or deaths caused by a person who is transporting or storing a firearm or ammunition in accordance with the law.
Basically, they were countering a similar bill that a group of Republican lawmakers sponsored a similar bill during the past legislative session.
Would this also apply to Postal workers?
