What are the chances of getting something similar passed in Alabama ? I would think with our current House and Senate makeup that we could get something similar? I have sent an email to my state rep, Mickey Hammon. Hopefully something will come of it.

unless they add into the bill that MG also manufactured in AL etc.... I find the bill to be too weak IMO.

Agreed... Just wondering if the folks we have in our state government would go for anything that would be thumbing their nose at the feds.

The Montana Firearms Freedom Act [1] is an attempt to limit federal jurisdiction over firearms in the state of Montana.

Provisions

The law declares that firearms manufactured in the state of Montana after October 1, 2009, and which remain in the state, are exempt from United States federal firearms regulations, provided that these items are clearly stamped "Made in Montana" on a central metallic part.

It applies to all firearms other than fully automatic weapons, firearms that cannot be carried and used by one person, and firearms with a bore diameter greater than 1½ inch which use smokeless powder. It also applies to ammunition (except exploding projectiles), and accessories such as silencers.[2]

The law has no requirements for registration, background checks or dealer licensing.
