A gun advocacy group in Florida is offering a free AR-15 to draw more attention to its efforts.
Billed as “New Gear for a New Year,” the gun rights organization Florida Carry will give away a free rifle — minus fees to lawfully transfer the firearm — to a lucky member or registered supporter, according to their Facebook page.
As stated on their web site, the group is “a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots organization dedicated to advancing the fundamental civil right of all Floridians to keep and bear arms for self defense.”
The Orlando Sentinel further reported:
Florida Carry lobbies the Florida Legislature and enters lawsuits to oppose gun restrictions and defend or expand Floridians abilities to carry firearms (and other weapons such as knives) for self defense in places ranging from the state fair to college campuses.
Sean Caranna, the group’s founder, said they have 12,000 members and registered supporters who will be eligible to win the AR-15, according to the report.
The Sentinel touched on the popularity of the AR-15 rifle, adding that “it’s also popular among mass-killers, including those who killed in Newtown and Aurora.”
The firearm, described by CNBC as “an obscenity, an assault weapon with no justifiable place in civilian hands,” is a frequent target of gun control advocates on the left,
The winner to be selected by random drawing of registered supporters and members on or about April 1st 2014.
