    Otherwise, what is your relevant point?

    The OP is all about anti-gun rights. Otherwise, there wouldn't be any concern over the issue.

    gun ownership causes fear and trembling in some. Usually those who are cowards and project their b incompetence in using weapons onto others. Many cowards hate being reminded of their own failings and seeing other men armed, ready willing and able to make personal security an INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY (rather than something they-like a liberal-outsources to the government) really accentuates the cowards feelings of failure. So they try to ban guns so they won't be reminded of their own deficiencies as men

    You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but given that it is clearly of the fringe variety (given that "loony left" is a fringe term) I don't think it represents the mainstream. A political party raffling off a cheap handgun in a district where a U.S. Congresswoman (of the opposing party) was recently shot in the head by a cheap handgun is simply crass behavior. Indisputable. That such crass behavior is constitutionally protected makes it no less crass.

    The Pavlovian reaction is that of those who react without independent analysis of a specific situation.... for example, a gun club/shooting range raffle of a Glock 23 in such a locale would not be an extraordinary event. Since the usual suspects can be relied upon to defend any type of arms transaction, even including the personal ownership of nuclear weapons (as we are nearly seeing in another thread), the true origin of the Pavlovian reactions are rather clear.

    Let's try again Karl

    we learned you don't know much about handguns when you claim a glock is "cheap"

    so how about some honest answers

    Thanks for the info. I was wondering if you would have to have a permit. I know a lot of times to win a car or even a motorcycle you have to have a license and sometimes even insurance. I know I wanted to enter a contest for a Harley and could not enter due to not having a motorcycle license.

    Not to own it or possess it and certainly not to sell it if you were to win it
