AL open carry law goes into effect

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Alabama's new open carry gun law goes into effect this week.

"Open carry" means those without a weapons permit can only carry a firearm if it is openly displayed. It cannot be concealed.

Business owners can keep guns off their property, but they must post a sign at the entrance banning the open carry of firearms. Violators face arrest and trespassing charges.
