    HUNTSVILLE, Alabama - Gov. Robert Bentley said today he has signed into law sweeping gun legislation.Following a luncheon speech today, Bentley reiterated that he backs the Second Amendment that provides the right to bear arms but his enthusiasm for the bill seemed to be tempered."The gun bill, I believe it was OK," he said.

Everybody signed off on it and I signed it."Asked about his seemingly lukewarm thoughts on the bill, Bentley answered, "I think...

    WILLIAMSBURG, VA – Alabama Governor Robert Bentley on Saturday responded to an Associated Press report that said the Governor called on Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney to release financial documents. The report further said Governor Bentley suggested that by not releasing various documents, a person might have something to hide. Earlier Saturday, Governor Bentley was asked by a reporter at the National Governors Association conference whether he thought Mitt Romney should release tax returns. The Governor said yes - adding that he believes in transparency and releases his own tax returns each year. Contrary to the AP report, Governor Bentley...

    Bentley said that Romney’s refusal to release more returns has created a “distraction” that Democrats were successfully exploiting. “I just believe in total transparency,” Bentley told ABC News at the National Governors Association conference. “In fact, I was asked today that question — do you think that Governor Romney should release his tax returns? And I said I do. I said, I release my tax returns. I may be the only public official in Alabama that does, but I release mine every year and I just believe that people should release their tax returns. And if you get them out...

    Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley told a church crowd just moments into his new administration that those who have not accepted Jesus as their savior are not his brothers and sisters, shocking some critics who questioned Tuesday whether he can be fair to non-Christians.

The Anti-Defamation League on Tuesday called Bentley's remarks shocking. "His comments are not only offensive,...

    BERLIN (AP) — Luxury carmaker Bentley says it’s recalling 820 cars worldwide over fears that its famous “Winged B” hood ornament could injure people in an accident because it might not properly retract.

The company says no injuries have been reported but a dealer noticed the spring mechanism under the ornament has a tendency...

    The Browns looked in their own back yard to bolster the team on a frenzied first day of free agency. They signed two-time Pro Bowl guard/center LeCharles Bentley of St. Ignatius and Ohio State, and receiver Joe Jurevicius of Mentor's Lake Catholic High - and were finalizing a deal for punter Dave Zastudil of Bay Village, who visited Saturday and had dinner with team officials. They also signed former Falcons left tackle Kevin Shaffer to replace L.J. Shelton. "We definitely wanted to jump out early, and we feel like we helped ourselves, especially on the offensive line," said Browns General...

    For the first time, Democrat C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger has opened a significant lead against Republican Helen Delich Bentley in their race for Maryland's 2nd Congressional District, according to a new poll. The Maryland Poll - conducted for The Sun and The Gazette newspapers - found that Ruppersberger, the Baltimore County executive, leads the former congresswoman 46 percent to 38 percent, with 15 percent undecided with less than a week before Election Day. When undecided voters leaning one way or the other are taken into account, Ruppersberger's lead increases to 49-40.

    Election: Late-deciding voters will likely sway close contests for the state's top office and for two congressional seats. The race for Maryland governor is deadlocked and will be decided by voters who have yet to choose between Democrat Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and Republican Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., and by a shrinking pool of others still willing to change their minds, a new poll released yesterday shows.
