Sweet Home Alabama!
Like most southern states Alabama has some of the most “classically” liberal laws concerning concealed carry. Alabama is unique in that it allows the counties of the state to issue concealed carry permits.
Applications need to be made at your local Sheriff’s office where your residence resides, and you must be 19 years or older to qualify. Good news is there’s no firearm training requirement.
Now, it takes 30 days from your submission of the firearm application to either be denied or granted, but don’t sweat it because the application is easy and not very time consuming.

YES – WITHOUT A LICENSE You are legally entitled to open carry in Oregon with the minimum age being 18. However, local governments can set their own laws for persons who do not have a handgun license and are carrying a loaded handgun. So you must check up on the local laws before you open carry. If you open carry without a handgun license then all public buildings are off limits.
YES – WITHOUT A LICENSE There are no state laws that ban the carrying of loaded firearms in a vehicle provided the firearm is not concealed or not readily accessible. However, local governments can set their own laws on public places which includes vehicles. So you would need to check the local regulations. If you have a Handgun licence then none of the above applies to you.

In Restaurants That Serve Alcohol “Yes” or “No” states if you can carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol. Some restaurants may be posted with “NO GUN” signs. Check with the staff if this means just the bar area. If we have indicated a “Yes” then it should be legal to have a meal without drinking alcohol.
YES/NO “No Weapons” signs are not mentioned in Oregon gun laws. There are no legal penalties for entering a private property or business that has posted these signs. They have no force of law unless they are posted in areas that are mentioned by the law as being off limits.
NO – MUST INFORM OFFICER Oregon gun laws make no mention of informing law enforcement you have a weapon. The laws do state that you must have with you at all times you are carrying a firearm your permit and produce this when requested. The Law ORS 166.292
