An Anchorage House Member Has Introduced A Gun Bill

first_imgThe bill would allow authorities to temporarily take guns from people deemed to be a danger to themselves or others. The bill has been pending for over a year but is just getting attention now following the shooting in Parkland, Florida, on February 14.  The bill was introduced in 2017, after an Anchorage man was charged in the shooting deaths of five people at a Florida airport. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Matt Claman says formal requests must be made for a bill to be heard and he doesn’t think one was made until after the shooting. Representative Geran Tarr (D-Anchorage) introduced the bill that will go before the House Judiciary Committee this afternoon at 1 p.m. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享An Anchorage area representative has introduced a bill that would permit family members or law enforcement to remove guns from someone they believe could harm themselves or others.
