    I completely agree. I'm not against the gun raffle, it's the time and the place.

    You are correct, I don't get it, quality or not, I don't understand why they would raffle off a gun that was similar to one that the one Giffords was shot with. In my opinion, the person who made this decision has his head up his/her butt.

    It was an entirely different group of Muslims who wanted it built. It was probably their right to build it right there but just not the way to go, at least to me.
    If they are American citizens they can so as they wish with in the law. Common sense is not a mandated by law, there for I will agree with your statement.

    Glock doesn't build Glocks with the intention that they be used for murder. They are intended to be used for lawful purposes. That someone abused one doesn't taint the whole brand name.

    The real diff between Mustangs and Glocks, or cars and guns? 1. Cars kill lots more people than guns. 2. One is Constitutionally protected, the other isn't. Guess which.

    Anyway, I almost forgot...

    I'd pop that sweet thing off like 'bing bing bing' all night long.
    LOL..this to I suppose but if I ran the raffle I wouldn't be a dick, I would give him the cash or at least a refund.

    The next time you watch a political convention rally, no matter which party, and you see the grinning fool with the straw hat on with the little American Flag. Well, there's the Einstein who runs these things.

    So a Glock is the only thing they could think of to raffle?!? Really!?! Wouldn't a better choice be something that everyone would want? Oh, and it is insanely insensitive.
    Yah - like a COLT AR RIFLE....Not taking anything away from the Glock. It's a great handgun for personal self defence.
