At a Chamber of Commerce sponsored tele-conference in Foley, Baldwin County Sheriff Hoss Mack fielded questions about Alabama's new gun law from more than 60 business owners.
The sheriff discussed several portions of the new law that will have a direct impact on business owners, including carrying an unloaded gun to work as long as it's locked up in your car and how teens as young as 18- many who work full and part-time jobs- can now apply for a concealed carry permit.
Alabama's new gun law is more than 30 pages.
Sheriff Mack says the law, like any new law, could be challenging to interpret and enforce in the short-run.
Mack encourages employers with questions or concerns to contact the sheriff's office or consult with a corporate attorney.
