Alaska: Emergency Powers Bill Passes First Committee

Gun Rights

Today, the House Community and Regional Affairs Committee approved House Bill 61, to ensure that Second Amendment rights remain protected for Alaskans during emergencies. It now goes to the House State Affairs Committee for further consideration. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 61.

House Bill 61 prohibits state and local government entities from closing lawful firearm businesses or restricting an individual’s access to firearms, ammunition, and component parts during declared states of emergency, unless such closures and limitations apply to all forms of commerce equally. This prevents anti-gun officials from interfering with Second Amendment rights under the guise of a declared emergency, when citizens need them the most. Further, the bill provides legal recourse for people who experience unjust infringements on these essential rights.

Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 61.
