Sometimes raffles can be a fun way to raise money for a good cause. Sometimes, though, raffles involve an AR-15 rifle, 1,000 rounds of ammo, and a picture of Hillary Clinton—as a gun group in North Carolina is offering.
Grass Roots North Carolina, a non-profit lobbying group that publishes things like "Remember in November: A Gun Owner's Guide to Voting," is offering "The Hillary Clinton Special" and encouraging people to "Get an AR-15 and elect pro-gun candidates!"
In the post, the group says, "We all know that if Hillary Clinton is elected President on November 8, panic buying will ensure that by November 9, there won’t be a gun (or ammunition) available for love nor money." But don't worry y'all—even after everybody "panic buys" all the weapons, GRNC will hook a few lucky winners up with "A Palmetto State Armory M4-configured AR-15" along with 1,000 rounds of "high quality ammunition."
Then it gets weirder: The package includes "A FREE PORTRAIT OF HILLARY CLINTON!" Why? Well although GRNC "won't tell you what to do with the photo," they've heard that Clinton pictures are "very popular at the range." You read that right: These guys love to use Hillary Clinton's photo as target practice.
Previously, the group recommended Ted Cruz in the GOP primary and slammed Trump because he "supported semi-auto bans, waiting periods and, most recently, denying gun purchases to people on secret government lists convicted of nothing," they wrote.
With that said, "The Hillary Clinton Special" seems like something Trump would enjoy. Trump has previously said Clinton's "bodyguards should drop all weapons" because "Crooked Hillary wants to get rid of all guns." He advocated for "No more guns to protect Hillary," adding, "Let's see what happens to her."
Before that, Trump, like others close to him, jokingly suggested Hillary Clinton should be killed. "Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment," Trump said in August: "If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don't know."
