For those of you that were counting on the pre-1964 Winchester Model 70 .30-06 caliber rifle to be made Alaska’s official state firearm, I have some bad news: Senator Charlie Huggins (R-Wasilla) has pulled his proposed legislation. Apparently, though the Model 70 was used by hunters, trappers, and Native Alaskans in the frontier days, the bill never received a hearing nor got any traction in the senate.
Perhaps you’re thinking to yourself, “What the fuck do Alaskan reps do all day”? Well, luckily for you, they tape it. Enjoy!
