Governor Parnell signed HB 319 into law in May, 2010, which makes CLEO signatures on ATF Form 4 mandatory within 30 days for all applications submitted by qualified applicants.

The text:

Sec. 18.65.810. Execution of federal firearms forms. (a) The chief

administrative officer of a municipal police department for a person who resides in the

municipality and the head of the Alaska state troopers for a person who resides in the

state but does not reside in a municipality with a police department shall execute

within 30 days federal firearms forms required to be submitted by the person as a

transferee of a firearm if the person is qualified under state law to possess the firearm.

Awesome post, great information, but I have to add an important clarification:

This is true only if you are carrying a concealed handgun. That is, open carry in a restaurant (which serves alcohol) is illegal in this state. (See AS 11.61.220(d)(1)(B) [apologies if this is not a perfectly accurate legal citation –– IANAL])

IANAL, but so far as I can tell this is the only provision in AK state law that restricts open carry differently than concealed carry (aside from the fact that you have to be 21 for the latter but not the former). I've written a couple of times to my state reps about this (as far as I'm concerned, the fix is to allow open carry in restaurants that serve alcohol), and received only silence in response.

I know CCW is the more popular method to carry, but since there's no clarification that "carry" here isn't meant to apply equally to open carry I thought I should point out this distinction in the law.
