I am reposting this from the Machine Gun forum, as it will be of interest to most people interested in RKBA:
Governor Parnell signed HB 319 into law today, which makes CLEO signatures on ATF Form 4 mandatory within 30 days for all applications submitted by qualified applicants.
The relevant text:
Sec. 18.65.810. Execution of federal firearms forms. (a) The chief
administrative officer of a municipal police department for a person who resides in the
municipality and the head of the Alaska state troopers for a person who resides in the
state but does not reside in a municipality with a police department shall execute
within 30 days federal firearms forms required to be submitted by the person as a
transferee of a firearm if the person is qualified under state law to possess the firearm.
Alaska now becomes, to my knowledge, the first "shall issue" state, with respect to NFA weapon transfers.
Kudos to Representative Mike Hawker who sponsored this law, and Governor Parnell who signed it! It's great to live in the most gun-friendly state in the Union!!
