(Sick) Sign of the Times: Arizona Republicans are fundraising by raffling off a Glock pistol, the same brand of gun used to shoot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords just eight months ago
The Arizona Republic reports that "[o]n Aug. 26, the Pima County Republican Party sent out an online newsletter that described the raffle as part of an initiative to raise money for get out the vote efforts, according to the Huffington Post, which first spotted the newsletter." Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot, and nearly killed, with a Glock. Sadly, a number of others were not so lucky.
