In AL, are you required by law to have a lock with the gun when a handgun is transferred to you?

Thanks!

I believe so, my last handgun purchase I remember having to initial that I have received the lock on some special form. For private transfers, doubtful.

I really really doubt it. I read thru the AL gun laws before and it said nothing at all anywhere about locks.

I believe the law that requires a lock with each new handgun purchase is Federal. Of course no lock is required if you use the gun show loophole.:crazy:

After looking for something about this, I have gotten an answer from the Guys at Simmons Sporting Goods in Bessemer (they've been selling me guns for 30+ years, so I trust their answer).

Anyway, there is no law, ALabama state or federal, requiring the lock, BUT BATFE Regs require an FFL to provide a lock with EVERY handgun transfer. So, if an FFL wants to keep their license, it is required.

So, that's the story I'm sticking to.

This ain't Kalifornia, Massachewsetts, NY, Chicargo or Ohier.

Federal requirement I'm told. I've got a box full if anyone needs one.

Lee county Sherriffs office gives them away. Or at least they used to....

It is a federal law requiring that a lock be provided with every gun sold from an FFL. A gun shop in Tucson that I bought a Redhawk from on Saturday complied by handing me a cable tie with the gun and telling me to have a nice day.. :thumbsup:

My trigger lock is called (common sense).

But nothing requires you to take it.
