    • We considered putting up a sign, much like checkpoint Charlie’s “you are leaving the American Sector” on the Knik River bridge as you cross into the muni.

  1. Anyone concerned that we are putting gun rights up to “mob rule / democracy”?
    The Valley very well could be Anchorage in 30 years.
    So of the majority votes anti-gun we have to accept that?
    About as unconstitutional as it it gets.
    Sic Semper Fidelis!

    • What’s anti gun about it? The proposition was to put it in the power of the voters rather than the borough assembly. It’s pro gun more than anything.

    • And what’s the alternative? How did you vote on this? What this does is prevent government from making off the cuff snap decisions about our gun rights.

  2. As all Americans should. Yes, please try and take our 2nd amendment away… that will be the day haha stupid liberals
