A county Republican group in Arizona is raffling off a gun to raise money for Get Out The Vote efforts, and HuffPo is sounding the alarm!
For just $10, readers can purchase a raffle ticket (out of 125 offered) for a chance to win a brand new handgun. Not just any handgun, but a Glock 23
Arizona Republicans surely know just how effective this particular brand of gun can be. After all, it was only eight months ago that Jared Lee Loughner used a Glock 19 in Tucson – the seat of Pima County – to shoot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the head.
That’s two different models that just happen be made by the same manufacturer. They aren’t even the same caliber. And, yes, the article even ends on a nice hysterical note about how the three 12-rounds magazines that come with the raffle prize will allow the winner to shoot even more people than Loughner.
For PA & NJ folks, you can win the Glock of your choice at the Friends of NRA dinner on Sept. 15. If readers buy a ticket, make sure to notify the person following up on meal choice that you’d like to sit with other blog folks, and we will make sure that there are enough reserved seats. Odds on many of the guns will be 1 in 50, maybe even better. If you want a Gold or Silver package, the odds on winning the Kimber Stainless Pro Carry II in that limited raffle are REALLY good right now – and your package is mostly tax-deductible.
Those in Arizona who want a raffle ticket to win the Glock 23 can get the details in the GOP newsletter.
