I am so proud to be an Alaskan. Tonight on the local news I learned that the governor signed a law that went into effect today making Alaska the second state in the union to allow anyone who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit. I've known for years that New Hampshire never required a permit for carrying a concealed weapon, but now Alaska joins this very exclusive club among the states.

Now lest anyone think I'm a gun slinger, I have a handgun that I never carry concealed simply because I don't feel any need to. BUT I decided years ago that I would carry a concealed handgun illegally whenever it pleased me. I consider my right to bear arms the most fundamental right I have except for my right to worship according to my own conscience. It is my passionately held conviction that no power or authority on earth has a right to tell me to go unarmed unless I choose to or unless I abuse my right to bear arms, something that I would never do.

Incidentally, Alaska is also one of the only states in the Union that has no legal requirement for home schooling. Together, these laws make Alaska a place where a person can be more free than in the rest of the country, a really good reason for staying where I am in my opinion. Uh... we also have no state income or sales tax. Hey, I'm a lucky guy living in the right place.
