AL Sheriffs Providing Illegal Conceal Carry Permits, According to US Department of Justice


The US Department of Justice reports that some Alabama sheriffs have been providing concealed carry permits without running full background checks. Some sheriffs have also provided permits even if the background check denied the application which may have allowed felons and others who are prohibited from buying guns the ability to do so.

Federally-licensed gun shops can no longer accept Alabama permits issued since August first, 2013 as alternatives to running a full background check for gun purchases.
