Did this idea originate with the same people who want to give the NRA $500,000 of taxpayer money annually to convince people that it is fun to kill things?

Jane - I own a gun and don't kill (living) things with it. Many pieces of paper, cardboard, soda cans, milk/water jugs have fallen to my mahem. Or are you against me "killing" inanimate objects too? You did not specifically define what "things" you're against killing. Your communication skills need work. PS don't rebut by using that old cliche "common sense" or "you know what I mean". I'm not psychic. Also, I'm sure you've killed many living things in your life, or had them killed. Insects come to mind.

Okay, I bought 3 of these tickets when the sale started. They give away the gift cards toward the CASH VALUE of the particular firearm listed, not the firearm itself. The winner can use the gift card toward whatever they want in the store. Perhaps if you narrow-minded, illiterate liberals would actually READ the article before going off half-cocked, things in this country would be just a bit better! Feel free to be angry with me, once you get someone to read my post to you...

I just heard about this from talk radio and will pursue getting a ticket to support them and this isn't my FD! It sounds like you don't have to get the gun if you win. Leftard winners could always get another pair of berkies. Think about this "If you don't like guns, don't buy one". Now wasn't that easy?
