Q. Are there laws relating to pellet/bb guns? Distance from road, etc?
Dear Juneau Resident,
Pellet and bb guns are not classified as firearms. Laws that reference 'shooting', like near a road, are not going to apply. Laws concerning reckless endangerment or assault could be applied to someone handling those items in a way that is dangerous to others. There is also the possibility of criminal mischief charges if property is damaged.
