Conrad Reynolds of Conway, a retired Army colonel and Republican candidate for Arkansas’ Second Congressional District, is giving away an AR-15 rifle, according to a news release on Monday (April 7).

Reynolds is seeking the seat being vacated by Rep. Tim Griffin, R-Ark. At campaign events, he is offering “wooden nickels” that have a serial number on them to be used during registration on his website.

“I believe in the second amendment wholeheartedly,” Reynolds said in the news release. “I understand that the Second Amendment isn’t about hunting, but about letting the citizens of the U.S. protect themselves and their property. What better way to show my support for the second amendment than to give away a rifle?”

The winner of the AR-15 rifle will be announced on Reynolds’ website on the day of the May 20 primary election. More information can be found by clicking here.
