Pima County GOP raffles off Glock in Gabrielle Giffords' district
Pima County GOP raffles off Glock in Gabrielle Giffords' district


The Pima County Republican Party is raffling off a Glock 23 handgun to raise money for get-out-the-vote efforts in Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' Arizona district.


The congresswoman is recovering from being critically wounded in a mass shooting in January that left six people dead and 13 injured, including Giffords. Giffords was holding a "Congress at your corner" event in Tucson when a shooter open fired with a Glock 19.


An August edition of the Pima County GOP's newsletter advertises that supporters can purchase raffle tickets for $10 to win the .40 caliber handgun, as the Huffington Post first reported.


"That's right, for just 10 dollars this gun could be yours," the newsletter reads. The Pima County GOP plans to sell 125 raffle tickets, and the winner will also receive three 12-round magazines, adjustable grips and a case.

4. GOPs/NRA --- a useful tool still today for them -- !!
They radicalized the NRA and used it to TARGET liberals and moderates in the

Dem Party -- but ALSO liberals and moderates in their own party, moving both

parties and Congress to the extreme right.


This should be shut down --

2. Were they doing this before the assassination attempt?
If this is something they do every year, then I wouldn't get to upset. If this is something they started after the shooting, then I will get upset - very upset.
