Pistol permits just got cheaper in DeKalb County.
That's thanks to a bill Governor Kay Ivey signed into law on Wednesday that lowers the price. The new law lowers the permit price from $25 to $15.
The bill also sets the price for active first responders to $1 per year.
DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden lobbied for the bill, saying first responders should be able to defend themselves in any emergency situation.
The new price takes effect at 8 a.m. on Thursday.
