    How to Register a Gun

    The state of Alabama does not require the registration of firearms. You do not have to acquire a license of any kind, but if you would like to obtain the right to a concealed carry, you will have to apply for a permit (in accordance with Section 13A-11-75). If you are are interested in obtaining this permit, visit the Alabama Sheriffs Association website and select the county in which you reside to find out more information. (To review the laws regarding firearms in Alabama, visit the state’s website.)
