Alabama needs better educated legislators. Section C states the "with intent to do bodily harm" caveat for possession of a firearm on school property. So without such intent they can carry or possess one. Also according to Section E, if you have a pistol permit it is legal to carry or possess a firearm on school property with the intent to do bodily harm.

http://www.legislature.state.al.us/code ... -11-72.htm

Section 13A-11-72

Certain persons forbidden to possess pistol.
(a) No person who has been convicted in this state or elsewhere of committing or attempting to commit a crime of violence shall own a pistol or have one in his or her possession or under his or her control.

(b) No person who is a drug addict or an habitual drunkard shall own a pistol or have one in his or her possession or under his or her control.

(c) Subject to the exceptions provided by Section 13A-11-74, no person shall knowingly with intent to do bodily harm carry or possess a deadly weapon on the premises of a public school.

(d) Possession of a deadly weapon with the intent to do bodily harm on the premises of a public school in violation of subsection (c) of this section is a Class C felony.

(e) Law enforcement officers are exempt from this section, and persons with pistol permits issued pursuant to Section 13A-11-75, are exempt from the provisions of subsection (c) of this section.

(f) The term "public school" as used in this section applies only to a school composed of grades K-12 and shall include a school bus used for grades K-12.

(g) The term "deadly weapon" as used in this section means a firearm or anything manifestly designed, made, or adapted for the purposes of inflicting death or serious physical injury, and such term includes, but is not limited to, a bazooka, hand grenade, missile, or explosive or incendiary device; a pistol, rifle, or shotgun; or a switch-blade knife, gravity knife, stiletto, sword, or dagger; or any club, baton, billy, black-jack, bludgeon, or metal knuckles.

I know I would not have any intent of harming anyone at a K-12 school. :mrgreen: I wonder why they didn't include trade schools, colleges and preschools? #-o How about no guns also for those addicted to violent video games???? =P~
Certainly more sense than the Colorado laws................ =;
