Alaska: Legislature Passes Emergency Powers Bill

Gun Rights

Yesterday, with bipartisan approval, the Senate voted 17-3 to pass House Bill 61, to ensure that Second Amendment rights remain protected for Alaskans during emergencies. Please contact Governor Mike Dunleavy by clicking here to ask him to sign HB 61 into law.

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. This is the first major pro-Second Amendment bill passed by the legislature in 10 years; a great victory for Alaskans!

Again, please contact Gov. Dunleavy to ask him to sign HB 61 into law.
