Alabama law does not require you to have a locking device to accompany the sale of a firearm, but federal law still applies. Alabama also does not require firearm owners to lock their weapons.
But just because you don’t have a FSD (Firearm Safety Device), doesn’t mean you don’t have to practice safe storage laws that promote responsible gun-owning practices. This requires gun owners to store their firearms unloaded and locked when unattended. These safe storage laws are intended to help prevent tragedies due to suicide, unintentional discharged and gun theft, by preventing unauthorized users, including children, from accessing and using firearms.
