Do you want to know how to get your Alaska FFL? Are you overwhelmed by the heavy handed Federal regulations and confusing laws and rules about being an FFL in Alaska? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone!
Alaska is a wonderful place to be an FFL! Gun ownership is deeply ingrained into the local culture, and you don’t even need a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The Last Frontier might have a small population mostly centered around two cities, but there are a lot of opportunities for FFL’s in Alaska. Because there is a lot of wide open space, and very few people, combined with simple, straight forward gun laws, and a real need to own heavy defensive firearms, there are a LOT of gun owners in Alaska!
Alaska FFL’s wanting to sell NFA items are in luck too. If it can be registered with the ATF, you can own it in Alaska. There is a steady market for silencers and short barrel weapons for use in hunting and protection from dangerous game.
Ready to get your Alaska FFL? Great! Let’s look at the simple steps you need to get it.
The ATF has pretty basic requirements to get an FFL. So basic in fact, we’ll only glance at them, because the real problem lies with Alaska licenses and rules.
To get an FFL, the ATF requires that you basically be a law-abiding US citizen or permanent resident over 21 years of age who can legally own a firearm. Pretty simple stuff really. The paperwork is annoying, and you have to demonstrate you are planning to operate a business, but that’s not too hard.
What is hard for would-be Alaska FFL holders is that the ATF also requires that you have all appropriate state and local licenses before you can be in business. And that is where the “fun” starts…
Alaska makes it very easy to get an FFL, because there are no state specific firearms licenses. While some states require a redundant sort of “state issued FFL” Alaska only requires you to get regular business licenses.
While there are no state level gun dealer licenses, you must still be successfully licensed with the state and the local area you are doing business in. You also have to operate in a correctly zoned area that matches the type of business you are doing.
Alaska has a lot of small towns and rural areas with less restrictive zoning regulations than developed population centers. That means if you want to get a home based FFL in Alaska, it should be pretty easy.
As you can see, you cannot get your Alaska FFL until you are licensed to do business at the location you choose. Both the ATF and the State of Alaska require that you be properly licensed locally before you can do business.
It is impossible to describe all the possible local problems getting a business license in Alaska for your FFL. Typically your biggest issue will be zoning. If you are in town that’s usually pretty cut and dried. If you are trying to set up a home based FFL, you need to make sure that you can get a zoning variance for the kind of business you are trying to operate.
To get your Alaska FFL, you’ll likely mostly have to satisfy the ATF that you’ve done your homework. Local business licenses shouldn’t be a problem, but there is always the chance that local offices could try and hold you up.
