Mobile Mardi Gras Gun Ban Appears To Lack Basis In State Law | WKRG


The state of alabama code states that if you have your pistol permit you may carry a concealed weapon,” says Mobile County Sheriff’s Office Public Affairs Director Lori Myles. She is citing a state law that says a city can't pass its own gun restrictions, only the legilsature can. We're not sure how long the city has been asserting no guns at Mardi Gras.

That would be called pre-emption. Texas has it also, and a locality may not enact firearms regulations stricter, than what the state already has enacted. They may only regulate the discharge etc. within the city limits, but not carry.
