Here’s Where Voters Will Decide on State Gun Issues

By: Teresa Mull

Voters in Alabama and Montana will be making some decisions today on their states’ gun rights.

In Alabama, voters will be deciding on Amendments 5 and 6. According to their language, these amendments would amend the state’s constitution to (respectively):

Relating to Franklin County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that a person is not liable for using deadly physical force in self-defense or in the defense of another person on the premises of a church under certain conditions.
Relating to Lauderdale County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that a person is not liable for using deadly physical force in self-defense or in the defense of another person on the premises of a church under certain conditions.

In Montana, voters will determine whether they want to adopt Legislative Referendum 130. The initiative, according to choteauacantha.com, “…asks voters to remove local governments’ power to regulate the carrying of concealed firearms — or to restrict the open carry of firearms — except in public buildings within a government’s jurisdiction.”

GPM will, of course, keep readers apprised of all the latest developments regarding guns as the election results roll in.
