In Wake of School Massacre, Tea Party Holds ‘Great Gun Giveaway’ | Common Dreams

What, exacttly, are their principles?

Four days after a gunman massacred 26 people—including 20 children—at Sandy Hook Elementary School, a North Carolina tea party group announced a “Great Gun Giveaway” to raffle two semi-automatic weapons, including a rifle similar to that used in Friday’s shooting in Connecticut.

The Asheville Tea Party will raffle a .22 Magnum pistol and an AR15 semiautomatic .223-caliber rifle—similar to the weapon used to kill those in Newtown, Conn. on Friday—to raise money for “candidates for office who support our principles,” according to a flyer posted on the group’s website on Monday.
