Machine Gun Kelly’s Made in Alaska Bill

I grew up with guns.  I got a .22 rifle for my ninth birthday that I still have and love.  I have put thousands and thousands of rounds through that rifle and used it to kill more than a couple of cute little animals that wound up on a dinner table.  I am a member of a “sportsman” group so I can get a discount at the indoor shooting range when it’s too cold to go shoot outside.  I have 4 guns in my house right now, and grew up in a house with around a dozen different rifles, shotguns and handguns.  I am really looking forward to recently elected Anchorage assemblyman Dick Traini’s big machine gun shootout fundraiser.

Now that I have said all of that it is pretty obvious that I am going to say something against guns, so here it goes…

‘Made in Alaska’ firearms bill would assert state rights

The state Legislature has passed a measure exempting from federal gun regulations firearms, accessories and ammunition made and kept instate. The so-called “Alaska Firearms Freedom Act,” sponsored by Fairbanks Republican Rep. Mike Kelly, passed the Senate Friday. It now goes to the governor. It is another effort to assert state rights over federal regulations. The firearms in question also must have “Made in Alaska” stamped on them.
