Senate panel to hear resolution on gun control

A resolution opposing the Obama administration’s executive actions on gun control has been officially introduced to an Alaska Senate panel.

SJR6 urges President Barack Obama to refrain from any further actions that would restrict the ownership of firearms. It also asks Congress to make sure that the Second Amendment is protected from any executive actions that might circumvent it.

The resolution refers to the Second Amendment as “our most fundamental right.”

Sen. Fred Dyson, the resolution’s sponsor, introduced SJR6 to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday. Dyson told the committee that he believes the steps taken by the Obama administration are an intrusion on the authority of the state.

The committee will hear public testimony regarding the resolution Friday.
