Registering a Firearm

There is no law that requires a person in Alaska to register a firearm. Furthermore, the state of Alaska specifically prohibits any local authority from asking a resident to register a firearm.[3]

Alaskans are not allowed to conceal a firearm unless they have an Alaska Concealed Handgun Permit (ACHP). Residents twenty-one (21) years or older may apply.
