You may carry firearms for protection or hunting in Alaska with proper permits. Airline passengers must declare their firearms and check them as baggage. Adults (18+) may take non-prohibited firearms into Canada for a lawful purpose. There are more restrictions on handguns than hunting rifles and shotguns.
