FAIRBANKS - Rep. Don Young was packing heat at a public meeting, and the crowd fully supported it.
Young addressed the Second Amendment Task Force, a gun rights group, Monday in Fairbanks. Young went straight to the meeting from the airport so he didn't have a gun with him.
But he gladly strapped on a borrowed holster with a Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum in it. He said "this feels pretty good," and posed for pictures with group members.
About two dozen people in the restaurant audience also had handguns holstered at their sides.
