In one of those “so shockingly crazy that it can’t possibly be true” moments, the Pima County Republican Party in Arizona has decided to hold a fundraising raffle for a Glock 23 handgun – the same type of gun that Jared Loughner used in his attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, which left six others dead. Here’s a screenshot of the fundraising letter from HuffingtonPost:
This is poor taste to say the least. To even comprehend that the local Republican Party of Giffords’ congressional district is raising money that might be used to unseat her by raffling off a similar handgun that was used in her assassination attempt is beyond crazy. This makes Sarah Palin’s crosshairs seem like a joke.
