GUN BILL THAT ALLOWS TEENAGERS TO RIDE AROUND WITH GUNS?
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - MARCH 6, 2014
SENATE BILL 354
For my entire life, including more than 40 years in law enforcement, I have been a staunch advocate for gun rights and protecting the 2nd Amendment. Recently I learned that the Alabama Legislature is considering a bill that would allow all teenagers to carry handguns in their vehicles. I am joining other law enforcement officials and officers in opposing this bill because of the tremendous danger to law enforcement officers and to our community.
Imagine a police officer stopping a car full of teenagers at 2 a.m. and discovering that the car was full of handguns. If this proposed legislation passes – the officer would have no choice but to watch the car drive off. As a parent, this is a nightmare scenario and one that should never happen.
Please join me in opposing this bill by letting your representative know that you DO NOT want armed teenagers roaming our streets.
