Governor of Alabama ends ban of guns at rest stops, effective immediately. 

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley announced over Twitter that he ordered the Department of Transportation to remove all signs banning weapons at all rest stops throughout the state.

In 2013, the DOT put signs up banning the carrying of firearms inside rest stop buildings, which included concealed carry weapons. This was after the state relaxed laws on its open carry policy.

After numerous complaints from truckers and other highway travelers they decided to review the possibility of removing the new rule.

After the announcement, the order went into effect immediately and the signs were taken down. The state reminds gun owners they must still abide by its other current state gun laws while carrying firearms.
