I'm putting this in GD, it is also in home town, but it may not get seen by everyone there. I just got off the phone with State Rep. Bobby Humphryes, a retired firefighter (not the football player). He will make an attempt to get the SBR law changed, as most of you know, SBRs are illegal in Alabama currently. He has tried before, but could not get the bill out of committee, the other Reps. didn't understand the NFA restrictions, or what a SBR was, most thought it would allow anyone to legally buy a sawed off shotgun at walmart, Rep Humphryes tried along with others to explain, but with no luck. Rep Humphryes is a friend to gun owners, and shoots at the FOP range in his hometown of Pleasant Grove. He will be running for the county commision (Jefferson Co.) in the place of Mary Buckelew, so this is his last chance. When he has a bill number, I will post it. Everyone please contact your Rep. and try to explain what an SBR is, and that they should vote for this, if it makes it to the house floor. He will present this bill next week to the committee, if it makes it out, it will come up for a vote.................Thanks everyone, Treeman

The Black Caucaus will block it again. But it's worth a try.

A little background: the Black Caucaus attached an amendment to a bill for SBR's(iirc) once before that would allow blacks ONLY to be LEO's in this state even if they have felony convictions.

These guys have way to much power and hold the state back in so many ways.

The black caucus does carry a lot of weight in Montgomery, they will not hesitate to hold a bill hostage, to get a radical bill of their own passed. They have cost this state millions of dollars in federal highway money in the last few years. If they choose, no legislation would ever come out of Montgomery. If anyone has anymore connections, please use them, Bobby will likely be elected to the county commission, he is a great friend of mine, we worked at the FD together for 12 yrs, before he retired, and if he wants to be a commisioner, I'm all for him, but this will be his last chance to get this introduced, and I don't know anyone else to ask, to re-introduce it, if it doesn't get passed this time. He said there was plenty of support for it, but the chosen few, who couldn't understand what a sbr is, killed it. ie..BC Like he said, they all thought it would allow anyone to go to wally world, and buy a sawed off shotgun, they have no clue about, or how NFA firearms are regulated.

The legislature has been on spring break, this is the reason for no news. I spoke with Bobby today(Thur) The bill has been introduced, and is in judiciary committee. House bill 833. Bobby thought it had little, to no chance of getting out, unless their is a lot of support from the voters ie..calls, and emails etc.. Bobby said when this was brought up last year, a voice vote was taken, and the in favor vote obviously won, but the head of the judiciary said the no vote won. A roll call vote was taken, and the for vote overwhelmingly won. Bobby also said the head of the judiciary, is an anti gun lib, who will do all he can to kill this. If you know anyone, or could call your rep. please do so. Also, Steve Turner is running for the seat Bobby currently holds. Bobby is running for the County commision (Jefferson), Steve will try, if elected, to bring this up next year. I can't remember the district, but it covers the north side of Jefferson County. Steve is also a friend of mine, and is pro gun. Please consider voting for them both, in their respected races, and make the calls, and send emails to your reps, it is the only way we will ever get the sbr laws changed in Bama. Thanks...Treeman
