I haven't been on-line long enough to know if the President has done something horrible or not, regarding his proposals for gun control; forgive me if I don't comment on it.
The mood here in Anchorage is somber. Firearms are part of our everyday wear; you put one on, just like a belt knife, before leaving home. We have bears that roam our neighborhoods (and they don't all hibernate, no matter what some schoolbook says).
Bears have frequently wandered our parking lot, too, and sometimes
employees can't go to their cars because there's a bruin standing in
front of the car. Trust me, a bear big enough to stand flat-footed and
look at you across the hood of your car is scary. And no matter the
enviro-weenies wish, that brownie ain't Winnie the Pooh.
For the last three or four years, there have been a couple of wolf packs roaming the green belts between Elmendorf AFB & Fort Richardson (now combined into Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson); joggers have been chased, and a couple of dogs (pets) killed by the wolves.
There's a BIG mama moose & her annual twins that live in the woods adjoining our parking lot, and are frequently seen wandering between the cars, or sleeping in a snow bank where it can get heat from the automotive radiators as they cool down in the mornings.
It's not uncommon, especially in the winter when snow on the mountainside drives more moose into town in search of plants to eat, for people to be late for work because Mr. Moose was standing near their front porch, munching on a bush or young tree.
A full-grown bull moose weighs around 1,200 pounds; unsuspecting people (usually tourists) get trampled or kicked every year. That's nothing to mess with.
This is going to be an interesting time, no? But I think you'll find that Alaskans will not disarm, in general.
