U.S. Rep. Moore announces support for State Rep. Sorrell’s constitutional carry bill
Friday, U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) announced he was following U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks’ (R-Huntsville) lead and supporting the constitutional carry bill sponsored by State Rep. Andrew Sorrell (R-Muscle Shoals).
The legislation, HB405, would allow citizens of Alabama to carry a concealed pistol on their person without a permit.
Moore also indicated his support for the State Senate version of the legislation, SB5, carried by State Sen. Gerald Allen (R-Tuscaloosa).
In a statement provided to Yellowhammer News, Moore said, “More than a dozen other states have passed similar ‘constitutional carry” laws. The constitution is clear, our right to keep and bear arms ‘shall not be infringed.’ We shouldn’t need a permit to exercise our rights. The 2nd amendment IS our permit. I completely support Rep. Sorrell’s efforts to protect the gun rights of Alabamians. I’m pleased this bill has passed in committee and hope momentum for this bill and the similar Senate bill (SB5) brought by Sen. Gerald Allen (R-Tuscaloosa) will continue to grow.”
He added, “I believe it will. People are realizing that now, more than ever, we need state legislatures to step up and fight against gun grabs by the Democrats. From Biden’s executive orders to disastrous legislation being shoved down our throats, our Second Amendment rights are in jeopardy. They are coming after our guns, and the states are our last line of defense to protect this right that ensures we can protect all others. We need to send a clear message to the gun-grabbing left in the DC swamp—Alabama believes in the sacred right to keep and bear arms, and we will protect it.”
