Conservative Website To Give Away Free Guns Until Election Day

The Daily Caller, a conservative website run by right wing pundit and noted hack Tucker Carlson, is holding a contest in which it will give away a free gun every week from now until election day.

According to the website, each gun will be engraved with the Bill of Rights.

“Like most Americans outside Washington, DC, New York City and most of our nation’s news rooms, large numbers of Daily Caller readers love guns,” wrote Daily Caller CEO Neil Patel, apparently missing the irony in the fact that he runs a news room in Washington.

Several commenters on the post announcing the contest have volunteered their reasons for entering, such as “we have to protect ourselves from the big bad puddy tats[sic] or the New Black Panther party,” and “Liberals are in Season right now.”

What could possibly go wrong?
