Montgomery Businesses Requesting Anti-Gun Stickers


Montgomery County sheriff's officials say they've ordered about 3,000 stickers to distribute to area business owners who don't want people carrying guns into their establishments.

   Sheriff D.T. Marshall tells AL.com (http://bit.ly/1bPk5kU) business owners can place stickers on a sign or on their doors to indicate that guns are not allowed in their businesses.

   A new law went into effect Thursday that prohibits employers from barring loaded guns from their properties as long as they're kept locked in a car.

   Marshall says hundreds of business owners have requested the stickers and he expects them to arrive at his office Monday.

   Marshall and Montgomery Police Chief Kevin Murphy say they doubt the new law will have much of an impact on their area, or on the way criminals carry weapons.
