Not that the gun lobby doesn't heavily influence the Arizona Democratic Party also. But, all the same, I am still impressed by the lack of _________ : "Now, Democrats and other critics, including at least one GOP official, say the Pima County Republican Party is exhibiting insensitivity with its latest moneymaking effort - a raffle of a Glock handgun - and should find another prize to pitch in the same county where Giffords was shot in the head nearly nine months ago. The gun used in the shooting spree outside Tucson was from the same manufacturer. According to the Pima County GOP's online newsletter last Friday, the lucky holder of the winning $10 raffle ticket will receive a new Glock 23 .40-caliber handgun, which comes with three 12-round magazines, adjustable grip and a case. Pima County Republicans intend to sell 125 tickets, which "will go quickly for this firearm," the newsletter says." http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2011/09/01/20110901arizona-gop-gun-raffle-politico.html I guess lots of people in Arizona pack one of these babies: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glock Welcome to Arizona.
