Alabama is among the most heavily-armed states in America, according to a CBS News analysis of ATF gun registrations in accordance with the National Firearms Act (NFA). Weapons regulated under the NFA include short-barreled shotguns or rifles, machine guns and so called “assault rifles.”
WHOA! Wait just a second there, pard. I thought semi-auto rifles were "assault rifles," and they're not covered on the NFRTR that is the official list of NFA weapons. They can't have it both ways.
