Alaska Gun Laws and Travel Guide



In Alaska's case you are going through Canada if you are traveling to or from another US state and that is a whole other story outside of this piece. In very short words, no handguns allowed in Canada and long guns must be registered at border and are only allowed for hunting or contests. If you are traveling from state to state and carrying, you need to know the situation in each state you are entering or you could get into trouble. For certain states or if you have any doubt at all, keeping moving through the state (reference the McClure-Volkmer Act to only stop for gas and emergencies) towards your final destination state. Your destination state must have acceptable laws for your stay. We make some generalities with our color map here for ease of use so you should always look up the current details of the laws. Handgun laws are where it usually varies the most. This is a controversial issue but which ever side you are on, it is better to have informed people out there. You can also download an easy to print new 2013 version with all states and details.
