Alaska Carry Information

HB 102, signed by the Governor on June 11, 2003 changes Alaska Statute 11.61.220 to allow anyone 21 or older, who may legally carry a firearm to also carry it concealed without having to obtain a special permit. The possession of a firearm at courthouses, schoolyards, bars and domestic violence shelters will continue to be prohibited. Alaskans may still obtain a concealed carry permit if they want reciprocity with other states.

A person 21 or older may be charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon under AS 11.61.220 if s/he
fails to immediately inform a peace officer that s/he is carrying a concealed handgun
fails to allow the officer to secure the weapon or fails to secure the weapon at the direction of the peace officer, or
carries the weapon concealed within another person’s residence, unless s/he has first obtained the express permission of an adult residing there, whether or not the person has a concealed handgun permit.

As of today 03/03/08
Officially, there are 8,630 active "Alaska Concealed Handgun Permits".
Numbers obtained from the Alaska, Permits and Licensing Resources Unit.

Can I carry in a National Park?
On Thursday, March 19, a federal district court in Washington, D.C. granted anti-gun plaintiffs a preliminary injunction against implementation of the new rule allowing law-abiding citizens to defend themselves by carrying a concealed firearm in national parks and wildlife refuges.  
In Thursday's ruling, Federal District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly issued the preliminary injunction against the Department of the Interior rule that took effect on January 9, 2009.  The revised rule allowed individuals to carry concealed firearms for self-defense in national parks and national wildlife refuges located in states that allow the carrying of concealed firearms.

Can I carry in National Forests?
There is no Federal Law restricting Concealed Carry in a National Forest.
Be advised that any building on the National Forest belonging to the Federal Government is off limits to concealed carry they are considered Federal Buildings.

Can I carry concealed on Military Installations?
Concealed carry on military installations is prohibited by federal
law. Some military installations have shooting ranges. If the installation
does have a shooting range, they will have rules about transporting firearms
on that installation. Check with the proper military authorities at that
installation about their firearms transport policy.

Sweet...still waiting on the final word from the Company...

 What about carrying on the job?  Like if you work in a store or office not off limits (technically).  Do you by law need to get "permission" from the employer, or do you have the law on your side to CC to your office/shop?  I ask this because I am looking at a "purse holster"  and eventually will go back to work in the next year or two.  ETA: would NOT be at an already "Off Limits" location.

The answer to your question as stated.
You do not need their Permisson to carry at work. You would not be breaking any "Laws" but you may lose your job.
There is no Law stating that you can carry at work and can't be "Let Go" for doing so.


This would be a judgment call on your part.

I carry at work (and prior jobs) I do not ask or tell them.

ETA
"Let Go" = Fired, if you knew Company policy was No Firearms at work.
"Let Go" = Laid-off, if no policy but they just did not like you carrying to work.




Link Posted: 11/8/2007 2:50:01 PM EDT
I think that covers it.....

I figured that since AK is an "at-will" state (Fire/layoff at will) it would be at the discretion or bias of the employer after the fact.

Don't ask, Don't tell.  If I have to go through a confrontation at work (rather unlikely since I probably won't do convenience stores) being laid off would be the last of my worries!
Link Posted: 11/8/2007 11:21:48 PM EDT
Mrs. ken

Yep, don't ask don't tell is how I play the game.

If the Company did not have it forbidden in writing and I was ever found out.
I would play my "Ace in the Hole". That would be, I wanted to give the Company Plausible Denial. If that didn't work, oh well I'll find another job.

P.S. No matter how safe you are at work you still need to get from the parking lot to the front door and back again.
Being that you are a Female you run an extra risk.

Ripak,

It IS, in fact, legal to carry in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.  

"Can I bring a firearm for bear protection?

   Firearms ARE allowed in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve, but it is illegal to carry firearms in some of Alaska's other national parks, so check before you go."

Thanks. Really Thank You.

I knew of one, that I had learned about in my CCW class.
I just could not remember the name so I did not comment about any National Park in Alaska that we could carry in. I tried finding the name but failed.
I will confirm and add to the first post.

It is not against state  law to CCW on UA campuses (or any college in Alaska for that matter.  UA Regents have made it the UA policy you are not allowed to CCW.  If caught they can only ask you to leave and issue a tresspass warning, they can not arrest you for it.

Good Question.
I have not seen any posted numbers one way or the other as to how many Permits have been issued or are current. No way to tell how many People are carring without the not needed Permit.

FWIW. The only stories, I have read about have been People that by Law should not of been in possession of a firearm doing the unlawful shootings.
I think law abiding Alaskans for the most part are not *Make My Day* Trigger Happy.

It is outdated, but when I took my CCW class in 2001 there were about 10,000 CCW holders.  Less incentive now with no NICS-exempt status (I still have mine though ).  You only get reciprocity, and may be a leg up in court if you are forced to act.

Naturally you cant carry past the security check point.  Do they mean the whole airport?  Is there some written law that says this? Or is it just some airport LEOs opinion?

What about Lake Hood?  What if I land at international and taxi to Lake Hood?  What if i drop someone off at the terminal and don't get out of the car?

As a Pilot your rules may very. Maybe with your inside knowledge/contacts you could help us find the answers.

I was told that it was OK to have a firearm in your automobile and would be OK to leave it inside while it is parked at the International Airport.

Lake Hood I did not ask about. I believe that would not be an International Airport and as such the laws may very.

No, this does not over-ride State laws.
They are free to post their signs and you can still carry without breaking any laws but once they ask you to leave then you need to do so because then you could be charged with trespassing.

National Parks and Wildlife Refuges. Yes we can but I'm not sure if it's without a Concealed Handgun Permit or if we must have one. This was not made clear from what I have read.

Any input from others is welcome. I'll update the first post when I know what to add.

Interior Announces Final Firearms Policy Update

"The final rule, which updates existing regulations, would allow an individual to carry a concealed weapon in national parks and wildlife refuges if, and only if, the individual is authorized to carry a concealed weapon under state law in the state in which the national park or refuge is located."

“The Department’s final regulation respects this tradition by allowing individuals to carry concealed firearms in federal park units and refuges to the extent that they could lawfully do so under state law.  This is the same basic approach adopted by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the United States Forest Service (USFS), both of which allow visitors to carry weapons consistent with applicable federal and state laws.”

Add another "thank you" to the list for all of the information.  

I am looking for clarification on something else.  I am a former Alaskan (and former permit holder) that no longer has resident status, but will be returning soon.  In order to carry under the new law, do you need to live in the state for a year (or some other period) first?  If I remember correctly, that was a requirement when you still needed the permit.

Thanks again for all the info.

If you just want to carry.......Alaska Statute 11.61.220 allows anyone 21 or older, who may legally carry a firearm to also carry it concealed without having to obtain a special permit.

If you want to obtain the permit.....Only Alaska residents may have an Alaska concealed handgun permit. You must establish residency in the State of Alaska and may apply for a permit after you have been here at least 90 days

So is there only one type of course that meets the requirement? I know an NRA course was mentioned on the website and I know NRA Instructors. I was wondering if there was a complete list of the approved courses. I know since I am in the military I can get the Florida one just for that and they accept different states courses and NRA courses. The website said that there was an assortment of courses that meet the criteria.

Ok, you obviously know more about it than I do but the states website is just throwing me off. It says things like this "A list of approved handgun courses is available from the Permits and Licensing Unit at the  address listed on the cover page." In plural which makes me think there is more than one and, "(a) An applicant for a permit to carry a concealed handgun shall provide a certificate of successful completion of
a handgun course that is approved by the department. The handgun course must have been completed within
the 12 months immediately preceding the application. The department shall approve a handgun course, including
the personal protection course offered by the National Rifle Association, if the course tests the applicant's
(1) knowledge of Alaska law relating to firearms and the use of deadly force;
(2) familiarity with the basic concepts of the safe and responsible use of handguns;
(3) knowledge of self-defense principles; and
(4) physical competence with a handgun.


That is right out of the statute. So that is why I am thinking there is more than one course. There are many other courses that meet that requirement, that is why I am wondering what they have on their "list" which they talk about but that you have to write in to them to get.

After thinking overnight about my above reply.
I now feel I was wrong to ask that this be taken to IM's.

Your question is a very valid one and should be addressed in the open.

I made a phone call to the Alaska Dept. of Public Safety
Permits and Licensing Unit PH# (907) 269-0392  AK Concealed Handgun Licenses.

I am correct that there is only one class that is acceptable with the exception of a former Police Officer that has left the force within the last year and his training will count as being acceptable for obtaining the permit.

The closest city to you that offers the needed class is in Juneau.

No problem either way, either in here or IM. I called the Licensing place today and they told me something different. They said the the "Sitka Sportsman's Association" offered the course here in Sitka. I sent them an email to see what they say. I didn't ask specifically about whether there was only one course or not but that is the impression I got from the conversation.

Ripak,

Could you tell me what charges a person under the age of 21 might face, if found to be carrying a concealed pistol? The reason I ask, is because my wife is underage and she wants to weigh the benifit/downside of carrying. She is over the age of 18, has sound judgement and acceptable firearms handling skills as of this point so I would normally encourage her to carry, but I do not want her to become a felon or face other serious charges.

I hardly have the time to come on here anymore, so I often forget that I posted a question... I would greatly appreciate it if you could send me an IM with a reminder of the question I posed.
