JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC)- Alabama's new gun law takes effect at midnight. But one of the key questions it raises may not become an issue until the first football games of the season.
Some of the changes include:
-You can now carry a gun in your car, even if you don't have a license, as long as it is unloaded and out of reach.
-You also can carry your gun to work as long as you have a license or it's during hunting season, and the gun is kept secured and out of sight.
-You can now openly carry your firearm in public places or even on private property unless the property owner posts a sign at the entrance saying no firearms allowed.
-The law allows you to carry your licensed gun into sporting events, unless the schools or teams hosting those events take certain steps.
