( – On Saturday, Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R)  signed a law which would not allow state and local officials from closing gun stores in cases of disasters, unless all other businesses were also closed.

House Bill 61, has been celebrated as an important step for the Second Amendment, with many Alaska residents supporting the law. The law was also backed by the NRA and Cathy Tilton, the Republican House Speaker, and has been the result of the COVID-19 pandemic when many businesses, including firearm businesses were closed across the U.S. as a result of the pandemic.

The State Director of NRA Alaska Aoibheann Cline released a statement to Fox News Digital in which he praised the government for passing the law. As he pointed out, House Bill 24, the last pro-Second Amendment legislation was signed in 2013 which was a decade ago. He then noted that House Bill 61 was another milestone for the state.

The bill specifically restricts state and local government entities from blocking the access of individuals to firearms, component parts, and ammunition during times of emergency. The prohibitions previously placed on those who are restricted from having access to firearms would continue to apply.

Dunleavy revealed to Fox News Digital that firearms continue to be an important part of the Alaskan way of living. He added that they are used for protection, food, and even during times of emergency. This bill will protect the Second Amendment rights of Alaskans at the time when it might be most necessary to them.
