Alaska law significantly limits civil lawsuits against firearms manufacturers and dealers:

“A civil action to recover damages or to seek injunctive relief may not be brought against a person who manufactures or sells firearms or ammunition if the action is based on the lawful sale, manufacture, or design of firearms or ammunition. However, this section does not prohibit a civil action resulting from a negligent design, a manufacturing defect, a breach of contract, or a breach of warranty.”1

A person who provides firearm training to a person who receives a permit is not liable for any damage or harm caused by the person receiving the training and permit.2

A person is not liable for any injury or damage resulting from the storage of a firearm in the vehicle of another.3

See the Machine Guns section for the immunity law related to machine guns.
