Ban on short barreled rifles passes Alabama House of Representatives.

House Bill 2 passed the House on Thursday, January 28 by a 97-2 vote. It now moves to the Senate for consideration.

Sponsored by State Representative Jeremy Oden (R-11), HB2 would repeal the section of the Alabama statute that prohibits the possession, sale, receipt, or use of rifles with barrels less than 16 inches long. These rifles are already legal under federal law when properly registered.

This is a good thing. I might have to look into a short barrel for my AR if this passes the Senate. I also need to contact my Senator make sure he know's I support this bill.
