Ala. Senate considers bill relaxing gun control

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Senate has started a debate on easing some of the state’s gun restrictions.

The Senate voted 26-7 Thursday to consider the bill, which was an indication of its support. The bill by Republican Sen. Scott Beason of Gardendale would allow workers to keep guns locked in their vehicles while at their jobs, and would allow people to get a lifetime permit to keep guns in their vehicles all the time.

The bill is supported by the National Rifle Association and opposed by some sheriffs and the Business Council of Alabama.

During the debate, several senators offered amendments for discussion.
