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.

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................ =;
