Just eight months ago, a crazy gunman walked up to Democratic congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona at a democratic political rally, shot the congresswoman in the head in an apparent assassination attempt and killed six people as he emptied his glock into the crowd. Today, a Republican fundraiser in Arizona is offering the same type of weapon, a glock 23, as a prize in their raffle.
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. Giffords survived, but six other people, including a nine year old girl and a federal judge, were killed in the same shooting.
The raffle gun comes preloaded with adjustable grips, a case, and three 12-round magazines. Glock USA describes the model as “a slightly reduced size of a full-size handgun for easier concealment but still retains the performance on the level of a serious big bore.
These people are mentally sick.
