Attention: I just got word that all new Concealed Carry Licenses will be issued with NICS EXEMPT ***IF*** you opt in for it AND fill out the ADDITIONAL forms when applying for your license. That's GREAT news. If you already have a license, stay tuned as the state will be rolling out a program to update your card, GUESStimation... 30-45 days.That is great news if true. Alaska CCWs lost their NICS-exempt status in 2006-2007 because the ATF got pissy with the State. Probably because we passed Constitutional Carry and the ATF
NICS exempt would be great to get back.
