NFA Firearms State Law Changes in Process

There are several states which are working on changes to firearms laws at the current time.

Alabama is in the process of legalizing hunting with suppressors
Georgia is in the process of legalizing hunting with suppressors
Iowa is in the process of legalizing suppressors
Washington State has both a house bill and senate bill legalizing the use of Short Barrel Riffles.

These new legislative initiatives should greatly increase the sales of suppressors and SBRs in the above states.

SBR / SBS will be legal in Alabama on 7/5/2010- AL NFA Gun Trust Update

Alabama Governor Riley signed a bill into law making Short Barreled Riffles and Shotguns legal to own. The law was signed on 4/14/2010 and becomes effective on 7/5/2010. If you have a NFA Gun Trust, there is nothing you need to do, to be able to purchase these items after 7/5/2010.

This also means if you are going to travel to Alabama, you can use a Form 20 to bring your SBR or SBS to Alabama after the law goes into effect.
