While the Federal Election Commission meets today to sign off on a request from Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to use campaign money for security upgrades, there is a report that Republicans in her Arizona district are raffling off the same type of gun that wounded the Democrat. The Pima County Republican Party is asking for $10 per ticket for a chance to win a Glock 23, according to the Huffington Post. The Glock 23 is a version of the Glock 19, which was used in the Jan. 8 shooting rampage that left six people dead and wounded 13 others. Giffords, who was shot in the head, was meeting with constituents at a Tucson grocery store.
Sick. Just sick. What are they hoping? That one of their number will finish the job the other nutbag started??? Oh you don’t know that Pima County is where Tucson is located, do you? Well it is. For the Repubs there to raffle off a gun similar to the one that killed loads of people and wounded the Congresswoman is the most disgusting thing that Republicans have ever done. They should be completely ashamed. They should be pilloried in public.
