how  the new  Section  1  would coexist  with  Section  1 of  the

MR. JUDY indicated  only the findings were taken out.  He did not

CHAIR SEEKINS asked  whether the intent of the  bill was restated

MR.  JUDY  said the  amendment  would  start with  repealing  and                                                               
reenacting AS 29.35.145(a).  The content of the  original bill is                                                               
clearly restated in the amendment.                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR FRENCH said by leaving  out "discharge" in Amendment 1 it                                                               
implicitly  cedes to  municipalities  the  authority to  regulate                                                               
discharge.

SENATOR  FRENCH said  he wanted  to make  sure subsection  (a) in                                                               
Section 2 doesn't override subsection (c) of Section 3.                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR   SEEKINS   said  it   does   not.   The  amendment   gives

whether a  municipality can tax  firearms or  anything associated

SENATOR FRENCH objected for discussion.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MR.  JUDY  explained Amendment  2  would  provide that  a  state,                                                               
municipality, or  person may not prohibit  possession of firearms                                                               
in vehicles.  He said he sees  a problem where an  employer has a                                                               
"no guns  in the workplace" policy.  The employer has a  right to                                                               
that policy in  the workplace but the problem is  when the policy                                                               
is  extended  to  the  company  parking  lot.  The  policy  would                                                               
effectively disarm individuals for the entire day.

The basis of  Amendment 2 allows workplace  restrictions but does                                                               
not allow them to be extended to the vehicles.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  GUESS asked  whether there  are current  state or  local                                                               
restrictions on having a firearm in  a motor vehicle at a school.                                                               
She  asked whether  this would  be changing  current practice  in                                                               
Alaska.                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MR.  JUDY said  he  didn't think  so.  Under Anchorage  municipal                                                               
ordinances, firearms are completely  banned in vehicles but under                                                               
state  law,   they  are  allowed  with   some  restrictions.  The                                                               
preemption  bill  would modify  the  Anchorage  ordinance but  it                                                               
would not modify state law.

SENATOR  FRENCH  clarified  Anchorage   municipal  law  does  not

is prohibited. HB 184 would have the effect of overriding that.

MR. JUDY  clarified under state  law, firearms are  prohibited on

Guns would have to be unloaded and locked in the vehicle.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  GUESS referred  to  line  16 of  Amendment  2 and  asked                                                               
whether it would exempt a  gun owner from anything resulting from

SENATOR FRENCH advised Mr. Judy  of his concern regarding private                                                               
property rights.  Amendment 2 indicates  a homeowner  or employer                                                               
would not be  allowed to bar people from bringing  guns to a home                                                               
or to the workplace.                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
MR. JUDY  claimed Amendment 2 is  an attempt to strike  a balance                                                               
between property rights and individual rights.

SENATOR  FRENCH  disagreed  with  the concept.  He  said  private                                                               
property is private property.

should be a misdemeanor.

The next bullet  on the amendment would repeal  the provisions on
