Alaska dosn't have a registration law, but Anchorage had a "volenteer" program where they would allow you to register your gun if you wanted too.
Don't know why unless a guy wanted proof of ownership if the gun was stolen or something.
In my twenty years on the deptment I dont know of anyone who took advantage of it, but I didnt work in records so I dont know.
Prehaps they have a simular program and thats how they come up with the name.
