Tea Party group thinks it's still cool to raffle semi-automatic rifles12/20/2012
According to the Asheville Tea Party, the show must go on, and by "show," they mean their plan to raffle off a semi-automatic rifle. Although the prize in their "Great Gun Giveaway" is a DPMS Panther Oracle AR-15 — a similar weapon to one used in Newtown — they will not be deterred. "It goes without saying that any innocent souls killed or injured by whatever means have our sincere sympathy," Tea Party vice-chairman Fremont V. Brown III said, adding that the raffle was "planned before the tragedy in Connecticut took place." Maybe, but it wasn't added to their website until Monday afternoon, which some might find a bit insensitive. [Source]
