We have to buy a ticket, If we were Mexican drug cartels the ATF would just give us one, or two, or three.

The Republican Party says they're still getting calls for and against the raffle. On Tuesday they will release details on when the raffle will be held.

Gee, their GOP offices are as bad as ours are... Pretty sure that every raffle ticket, if the raffle isn't being held at the location the ticket was sold, must provide details as to when, where and how the raffle will be conducted. It's like they're begging to get sued by some liberal with too much time on their hands.

Freeped.

Notice how on the page where you go to vote, right now, there is a picture and story about Gabby Giffords right next to the poll.

To bad someone didn't have a loaded gun with them at her rally and could have shot the guy before he shot her or killed anyone else.

Not a duplicate thread. There are two Tucson TV stations all wee-weed up over this.

Since it is one of the Guns Fast and furious provided to cartels maybe they are trying to make a point.

Glock 23 RTF2

IIRC an armed CCW was on site and reacted but did not draw his weapon. He just helped restrain the murderer.

That is correct. He saw the crowd, realized he didn’t have a clean shot and didn’t pull his weapon. Am right proud of that boy!

Why would it be inappropriate?
Numerous organizations regular have gun raffles to raise money.
Guns are a legal item.

Ah, I see the lib strategy now!

Since a politician was shot in Pima County, then no guns must ever be sold, purchased, traded, or raffled in that county ever again.

Then it's on to the next county.

Brilliant if it works.

That said, is it really true that the local GOP set up this ridiculous poll?

What are they down in Pima County -- Grand Old Pansies?!

I'm embarrassed to be an Arizonan...

With the variety of handguns available I feel it is very unappropriate. They should have raffled off at least a .45 caliber. And why only one gun? They should hold a gun raffle every week.

Is it morally wrong? No.

Is it politically stupid? Probably.

Because it needlessly gives ammo (pardon the pun) to Democrats, to say this was a crass political statement.

And that is politically very stupid and unnecessary.

With a Glock, you never have to worry that you accidentally left the safety on. If your finger’s on the trigger, the safety’s off.

Glocks are gang banger pistols. Should have gone for a Colt Commander or Browning Hi Power.
