BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Alabama lawmakers are on the verge of easing the state’s gun restrictions. It’s a hot button issue that continues to create emotional debate among supporters and opponents.

A bill passed by the Senate Thursday would allow you to keep a gun locked in your vehicle at the workplace. That’s currently against many company policies but the law would override employer rules.

The measure now goes to the House.

We will have more on what else the bill would do, Friday on CBS42 News at 6.
