If you live in a district which is home to a member of congress who was shot in the head by a Glock pistol, it may not exactly be appropriate to raffle off a Glock pistol at a political event.
The Pima County GOP — which is in the same district where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was shot early this year — is holding a very insensitive fundraiser this week. The party is holding a raffle fundraiser, and the prize is a Glock handgun, the same category of weapon that was used to shoot Giffords.
The Glock-Raffle is part of a “get out the vote” event.
