Alabama Legislation Aims to Shoot Down Presidential Executive Orders That Promote Gun Control
It's been a busy year for the Alabama legislature with regards to protecting the fundamental rights of its citizens. Alabama has just adopted permitless carry and another bill aimed at nullifying presidential executive actions that aim to impose gun control measures is making its way through the legislative process at this time.
According to House Bill 310, "an official, officer, employee, or agent of the state or political subdivision, when acting in an official capacity, may not enforce or administer any executive order issued by the President of the United States that limits or restricts the ownership, use, or possession of firearms, ammunition, or firearm accessories by law-abiding residents of the state."
Additionally, an official, officer, employee, or agent of the state or political subdivision, when acting in an official capacity, shall not be ordered, directed, or compelled to execute or administer the executive order. Importantly, no state or local public funds may be used for the enforcement of any executive order issued by the President of the United States that limits these fundamental rights.
