In Alabama can you be charged with "Certain Persons Forbidden to Possess a Pistol" if you did not possess a pistol?
The answer is yes because this law includes provisions that have nothing to do with any kind of firearm. For example, possession of a deadly or dangerous weapon on the premises of school when done with the intent to do harm is forbidden by this law. The moral of the story is that Alabama law can be tricky and complicated.
