MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange says several local and state agencies have started complying with gun laws after his office investigated complaints against them.

Strange said in a statement Wednesday that the Alabama Department of Transportation has rescinded a ban on firearms at rest stops after his office told the agency the ban was illegal.

Strange says the City of Moulton has also removed signs saying guns are prohibited at the city’s recreation center and at Alexander Park, and pistol permits in Lawrence County have been changed to better explain concealed carry laws.

The attorney general said complaints about gun bans were also filed against Auburn University and the University of South Alabama, but Strange says his office doesn’t have the authority to enforce state firearms laws at public universities.
