    JUNEAU — The Alaska House sent a message to Washington, D.C. last week opposing a measure that would require federal firearm licensing for some guns.
    All 40 representatives signed onto House Joint Resolution 17, sponsored by Rep. John Harris, R-Valdez. The Senate is working through a mirror resolution.


    I can't imagine Washington State's legislature doing something like this... Dangit I can't wait to get up to Alaska!

    History has shown that governments will find ways to disarm the people to gain power and support. It is taking much longer with America because many Americans understand what the 2nd Amendment really means, and it is embedded in our Constitution. We may not lose our freedoms in the next four years, but I have a feeling over the course of many years, through corruption and lies from our government we will see the fall of the greatest country in the world.

    I am happy to see that our state government is opposing HR45, I figured they would as guns are essential to our ability to survive in Alaska.

    I don't read the Fbx paper, nor the anchorage paper. Even thou the anchorage paper is to left wing to print that story.

    If I don't hear it on the AM radio or by someone else telling me about it. I am in the dark

    You are right about that paper mostly. But they did print anopinion article that is actually positive.

    Perhaps they are going to sneek it in while we all watch the volcano.
    Guess Sarah Paline will sign this one you think. LOL

    Our AL legislature gives great lip service to gun rights, but alas they bend
    over for the teachers unions, and guess what the school policy is on guns.

    See if you can add a ban on federal bullet taxes while you are at it.

    No offense, but I feel compelled to make some corrections...

    Sarah Palin (not Paline)couldn't"sign it" because it is not a state bill but potentialfederal legislation, introduced by a Illinois Congressman. And it is theAK legislature, not AL (Alabama).

    Well, I guess I should have posted something on this. I am the circulation director at the FDNM and see these stories all the time. I try to keep the editorial department informed when 2nd Amendment rights issues come up in town.

    Not sure if it is posted on here yet but take a look at Fairbanks paper today for a good story on the task force meeting last night. We had several guests including Mike Kelly.

    What is it like managing circulation for a paper like The News Miner? I'm the lead sales agent for The Olympian down here, and I imagine it's an entirely different world with newspapers up where you are at.

    AND an Alaska Firearms Freedom Act?

    Dude not only is Alaska looking more impressive all the time, your paper runs more decent gun stories than I have seen in the press for a long time!
