Alabama House Bill 225 - Seizure of Firearms During Emergencies

This bill is in the Judiciary Committee and has been read for the second time in the House of origin. From the ALISON Database you expand the Bills drop down, then expand the Search drop down and then select Keyword and enter HB225 (no spaces between HB and 225). From the synopsis, House Bill 225 goes as follows...

Under existing law, the Governor and local political subdivisions are granted additional emergency powers during states of emergency. This bill would specify that these powers do not authorize the seizure or confiscation of firearms or ammunition from persons lawfully authorized to possess them and would specify certain conditions when a law enforcement officer may disarm an individual.

This bill has been introduced by Representative Marc Keahy (D) representing Choctaw, Clarke & Washington counties. Again, thank you Mr. Keahy.
