    Anchorage Alaska Open Carry question!

    I am military serving on JBER, I know I can conceal and carry and understand the rules behind it. I have done a lot of googling and have not seen a strait up answer to the question.

    Can you Open Carry in Anchorage, I feel like i know the answer is yes, I just want a group of people to say it and reference it. As i have not found a state document that says the words open carry on it, everything says conceal.

    As you can understand i am military and want to make sure i follow the rules as to not get shafted as they say.

    Thanks for your time!

    Well,,,

    In all your research looking for a law that Allows Open Carry,, and finding None!
    You must have noticed,, to your chagrin,,

    the total lack of laws that Prohibit Open Carry!

    That is the Key!!!

    Welcome aboard Ryan.

    Moved your post to the Alaska sub-forum because the question is state specific.

    OC of a handgun is legal in Alaska precisely because there is no law making it illegal.

    Ryan, what law makes it legal for you to wear pink pants and a lime green shirt in public?

    LOL It is? That's not what my wife says (and she is an elite - a fashionista, used to own a number of specialty resort clothing shoppes, Savannah, Charleston, Kiawah Island).

    Generally laws regarding firearms are in AK statute 11.61.190-220. In that list in no place does it say openly carrying is illegal. The only references to manner of carry are relating to "concealed" carry as in 11.61.220. So like the people above have said, if it's not illegal, it's legal.

    Preemption laws take effect

    Thankfully awhile back the AK state Legislature took back control IF it is state legal the city can't say different we still have to follow Fed. Regs. for buildings and facilities but the individual legal entities( Boroughs and cities) can not exceed the state statutes.

    Understood Grapeshot I've caught a lot of small fish and let them keep playing on the line until THEY get tired.
    I won't call them names and I'll try to use them as a teaching tool for others that are willing to learn.
    I HAVE GRANDKIDS that learn by reaching into a hole without looking in it first.
