While the Alabama Legislature approved the law more than two months ago, law enforcement officers are still struggling to understand how it should be enforced, and some state officials say it needs clarification.
>It makes it harder for sheriffs to deny conceal-carry permits
>Employers can't be sued for gun-related damages on their property
>You don't need a permit to have a gun in your vehicle if it’s not loaded
>You can carry a pistol without a permit if you don't conceal it
>You don't have to be an Alabama resident or a U.S. citizen
