    Gun raffle to fund police cadet training criticized by gun control advocates

    When the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police was looking to raise money for an annual cadet training program, it sold raffle tickets for $30 apiece. The drawing was scheduled for May, but by Jan. 12 all 1,000 tickets had been sold.
    The prize: 31 guns, with a new winner drawn each day of the month.
    The fund-raiser, sponsored by the association in partnership with two New Hampshire gun makers, Sig Sauer and Sturm, Ruger & Company, has prompted a chorus of protests from lawmakers and gun-control advocates questioning why the police are giving away guns, even in the name of a good cause.

    I don't have a problem with it. I'd even buy tickets if there were any left. The egg sucking liberals can go fuck themselves.

    This is next on the ban wagon. Pretty soon it will be illegal to speak the word gun.
