President of Alabama gun rights group weighs in on Las Vegas tragedy

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — The Las Vegas shooting is sparking discussion about gun control around the country, and now a Tuscaloosa gun rights advocacy group is weighing in on the tragedy.

Eddie Fulmer is the president of Bama Carry.

Fulmer tells CBS42 that this is not the time to debate gun laws or call for tougher gun legislation. As a member of Bama Carry, he says people have the constitutional right to bear arms, and terrible tragedies should not change fundamental rights.

“An evil person who wants a weapon is going to get a weapon no matter what gun laws you pass,” Fulmer said. “And gun laws in my opinion only restrict the law-abiding citizens who will go through the proper channels to get one.”

Bama Carry has 1,000 members.
