Act Now: HB61, Equity in Tyranny

Never let a good crisis go to waste…  That’s the despot’s way.

In April 2020, that’s exactly what happened in Anchorage – the Municipality’s Little Tyrant (Mayor Berkowitz) ordered gun stores to be closed while marijuana, liquor, and general retail stores stayed open.

What Berkowitz did was illegal – Alaska’s laws do not permit any level of government to shut down commerce, let alone shutter gun stores while retailers next door stayed open.

Not satisfied with the ability to take advantage of a crisis, legislators in the House decided that tyranny for all is better than tyranny for none.

You read that right.  When an amendment was offered to remove a line from the bill that creates the authority to shut down gun stores – along with every other store – was offered, equity was their answer.

This was after hundreds of Alaskans called, emailed, and submitted their petitions to remove this poison-pill from this bill.

They’re trying to ignore you.

Speaking to the amendment, Representative McCabe (Big Lake) told his colleagues that, what was once a 2nd Amendment protection bill is now an equity in commerce bill.

But it’s really an equity in tyranny bill.

What started as a 2nd Amendment protection bill became an equity in commerce bill. But with newly created powers to shut down businesses, it becomes an equity in tyranny bill.

And with that, every Republican except Representative Eastman (Wasilla), and Representative Tomaszewski (Fairbanks), voted against the amendment that would prohibit the creation of new tyrannical powers.

You can see the tally here:

This bill is on course to steal more of your freedoms and liberties.

These subtle and seemingly small incremental steps add up to big margins over time, and that has consistently been the scheme of choice for the anti-gun zealots, driven to try and steal it all.

They intend to get away with it too.

You don’t have to let them.  You can amplify your voice and demand that they stop this anti-gun bill in its tracks.

You can add your voice to the hundreds of other Alaskans, telling your politician to correct their course.

You can do that by emailing them right now. It’s ready to go:
