You're fine as long as you don't try to sell it.
Note that we have LHBS here. The law is not enforced in any capacity, as the odds of it standing up to an appellate challenge are next to none.
The problem with Alabama is twofold:
1. To get almost any law changed literally requires an amendment to our state constitution. Every year, we have a dozen (or more) amendments on the ballot that go down to trivial crap like town boundaries, rights for municipalities to impose taxes, etc. It is 40 times longer than the US constitution, and is easily the longest in the world
. We badly need a rewrite, but nobody wants to uncover all of the rot that would come from such a task...
2. Alabama legislators are some of the most unqualified, corrupt, self serving thieves anywhere in any form of government. If a bill doesn't make money for a sufficient portion of the legislators (or does not have enough public outcry to endanger their jobs), it gets ignored of filibustered until it is dropped.
In short, the Alabama lawmaking process is a joke, and anyone with any modicum of civil understanding is appalled and/or ashamed of it.
