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.

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.”
