Tea party group auctioning off assault rifle in spite of Newtown massacre

Just three days after the brutal massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, a tea party group in North Carolina announced it would auction off an assault rifle, despite the fact that a similar firearm had just been used to murder 20 school children and six adults.

“We have given the Federal Government permission to disarm school officials by force of law and threat of imprisonment,” an essay on the Ashville Tea Party’s website explains. “They are now incapable of defending the children under their care. This is the reality. Does this not need to be changed?”

The essay, written by Ashville Tea Party Chairman Jane Bilello, goes on to insist that the group planned the raffle “weeks ago” and they simply didn’t make their plans known until Monday.

“ATPAC decided to go through with this raffle at this time because everyone is paying attention,” Bilello concluded. “We refuse to allow the Left and the Liberal mindset to once again hijack the conversation as they have and allow the political hacks to pass laws that continue to limit our inalienable right to protect ourselves and the most defenseless among us.”

1. Maybe if so many people with a poor grasp of reality weren't armed so heavily...

There would be less of a need to "defend yourself"?

The term is "positive feedback loop," guys. Look into it.

4. Many of the Teabillies are trashy as hell in this state, for some reason

I know I am not supposed to use perjorative terms here on DU, but I swear to god, these clowns climbed out from some dank cave...frankly, some of them could have been extras in "Deliverance."
