A bill (HB 600) was recently introduced into the AL House to require that guns be registered with Dep. of Public Safety. Here is an excerpt: "6 Section 2. (a)(1) Any person who possesses an 7 automatic or semi-automatic weapon shall register the weapon 8 with the Department of Public Safety pursuant to the 9 procedures established by the department. The registration 10 shall contain a description of the weapon that identifies it 11 uniquely, including all identification marks, the full name, 12 address, date of birth, and thumbprint of the owner, and any 13 other information that the department may deem appropriate. 14 The department may charge a fee for registration of up to 15 fifty dollars ($50). 16 (2) The department shall maintain the information 17 received from each registrant in an automatic or 18 semi-automatic weapon registry and information contained in 19 the registry shall be released only to law enforcement 20 officers. 21 (b)(1) Failure to register an automatic or 22 semi-automatic weapon is a Class A misdemeanor." Call or write your Alabama Representative. Let's raise a stink.
