Alaska: Legislature Adjourns with Unfinished Business Concerning Campus Carry

On Friday, May 20, the Alaska Legislature ended its regular session. Unfortunately, NRA-supported Campus Carry legislation, Senate Bill 174, officially died upon adjournment.  Your NRA-ILA will continue the fight for campus carry in the 2017 legislative session.

Senate Bill 174 would have allowed students, faculty and guests to own, possess, carry, transport or store a firearm on areas of the University of Alaska campus where not prohibited by law.  This legislation would have limited the Board of Regent’s ability to regulate the possession and carry of firearms on campuses at the University of Alaska.  A state-funded institution should not be allowed to impose rules more strict than state law, especially rules to limit one’s right to self-defense.  Individuals should not be prevented from exercising their right to self-defense simply because they choose to seek a college education.

SB 174 was approved by the Senate and quickly passed out of both the House Education and Judiciary Committees in April.  Unfortunately, the bill hit a roadblock and was killed in the House Finance Committee. 

Your NRA-ILA would like to thank the numerous NRA members and Second Amendment supporters in Alaska for taking action on this important issue this session.  Watch for NRA communication at the start of 2017 as we look for your support to help us build momentum for this important self-defense legislation in the next legislative session.
