Texas Congressman Giving Away Assault Riffle in Campaign Contest
Talk about shotgun politics.
Ordinary citizens, campaign contributors and perhaps even multiple felons now have the opportunity to win a free assault riffle, courtesy of Texas Congressman Steve Stockman.
According to a recent Twitter post, Congressman Stockman, the infamous Texas politician who believes there would be no abortion if fetuses had guns, is giving away a complimentary Bushmaster AR-15 to one lucky winner just for signing up on his Stockman for Congress site.

Upon registering for this lunatics riffle-raffle, registrants receive the following message:
President Obama is pulling out all the stops to ban firearms just like the one I’m giving away.
As a U.S Representative, I promise to do everything in my power to protect your right to keep and bear arms. Already this year, I’ve introduced legislation to repeal the so-called gun free school zones act, one to protect the gun rights of veterans and, along with Senator Rand Paul, a bill to nullify any anti-gun Obama Executive Orders.
I hope you will consider joining me in this battle by chipping in $10 or $20, or whatever you can afford, so I have the resources to continue the fight in Congress in defense of the Second Amendment.
Thank you for standing with me, and most importantly, for the work you do on behalf of freedom in this great nation.
Steve Stockman, Member of Congress
Reports indicate that the Bushmaster AR-15 is the same gun Adam Lanza used to murder some 20 children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Incidentally, gun rights supporters are Stockman’s third largest campaign contributors.
