[Video] Texas Congressman Giving Away Bushmaster AR-15 on July 4th
Texas Congressman, Steve Stockman, is going to give away a Bushmaster AR-15 to garner support for gun rights and thank supporters for helping to defeat federal gun control efforts earlier this year.
“Why am I giving away an AR-15 rifle? It’s just one way to thank you for defeating Obama’s anti-gun agenda this year,” the email, sent from Friends of Steve Stockman, said. “But the battle for the right to keep and bear arms is heating up again. President Obama and Sen. Harry Reid are not happy that they didn’t pass any gun control yet, so they’re coming back for more.”
Stockman is an strong supporter of the Second Amendment a staunch opponent of most of President Obama’s policies.
According to the Daily Caller, The gun giveaway is hosted on his reelection campaign website www.stockman2014.com and the promotion ends 11:59 PM July 3, 2013. The winner will be required to undergo a dealer’s background check and must meet all laws of the recipient’s jurisdiction.
It appears the contest is open anyone in the US where the rifle is legal, so enter away.
