Alabama law generally prohibits knowingly, with intent to do bodily harm, carrying or possessing a firearm on the premises of a public school, however, concealed handgun license holders are exempt from this prohibition.1 The term “public school” applies only to a school composed of grades K-12, but includes a school bus used for grades K-12.2

Alabama has no law restricting firearms on the campuses of colleges or universities.
