Washington GOP to auction AR-15 at fundraising event
From The Raw Story 11 April 2013
Despite the high profile mass shooting, State GOP Chairman Kirby Wilbur apparently believes the rifle’s reputation hasn’t been significantly tarnished. He told The Seattle Times that he was aware of the controversy, but thought auctioning the rifle was appropriate.
“It’s also the best-selling weapon in America,” he said. “I own two, they have never killed an innocent person.”
Wilbur also told The Seattle Times that auctioning the rifle was intended as a “pro-fundraising” statement rather than a “pro-gun” statement.
