No-Duty-to-Retreat Legislation Passes Alaska House

On April 9, House Bill 80 passed in the state House of Representatives by a 33 to 6 vote. HB 80 would remove the duty-to-retreat in Alaska.

Under existing law, there is no-duty-to-retreat if a person is in their home, business, or on their own property. Introduced by state Representative Mark Neuman (R-15), HB 80 would extend the right to use force, including deadly force, for self-defense anywhere a person has a legal right to be.

Thank you for contacting your state Representative and requesting his or her support of this legislation. Your NRA will keep you updated on the status of HB 80 when it moves to the Senate.
