    I am so thankful

    that I live in Alaska. I read the horror stories that many of you have when it comes to getting your permit and I come near to the point of weeping..

    Any human being in the state of Alaska who can legally own a firearm can legally carry said firearm concealed. There are permits (which I have gotten) available for reciprocity, but they are not necessary.

    I am an Alaskan import (not military) and I am convinced that in all likelihood I will live here forever.

    I do believe that she is hmmm, hmmm wonderful! Alaskan does have some lax laws in that regard it would great if FL joined the ban wagon.

    I am considering moving to Alaska eventually. Vermont is another nice one for gun laws, but more liberal over all.

    I hope you meant the "band" wagon and not "ban" wagon.

    that is the beauty of Alaska, it is conservative almost across the board, though there is a liberal movement forming.

    I've never been, but I hope to visit one day. I'm sure that it's a beautiful state. But I have no desire to live there. I while I wish that we had your laws, we do have very good laws, so we're in decent shape.

    Other states are lax, maybe not as lax as Alaska but not as strict as NJ either. I did not have to go through much to get my permit. 8 hour class, NICS check and Finger printed. Within a week I had my permit in hand.
