By now, most Alaskans have seen the ads by a candidate for Lisa Murkowski’s Senate seat claiming, “they’re coming to take our guns.” If anyone is lacking the intellect or ability to think for themselves, then they of course should vote for the fear-mongering candidate. It would be amazing if Alaskans could prove they are more intelligent than that.
No one is coming to take our guns; the whole scenario is not only ludicrous but impossible. Think with reason and intelligence, not with believing untruths when voting. There is no one coming to take your guns if you are a law-abiding citizen. The candidate putting out these ads is making a fool of herself; don’t let her make a fool of you.
