A Republican running for Congress in Florida wants to give away an assault rifle on Independence Day. Greg Evers, in the Florida legislature since 2001, announced the contest to give away an AR-15 rifle on his Facebook page Monday, saying he felt it was necessary to “protect our homeland” in the age of terrorism. Evers’ contest comes just days after 49 people were killed by an AR-15 in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history in Orlando, and amid increased calls for gun control by Democrats. All gun lovers have to do to win the contest is like and share Evers’ Facebook page, and the lucky winner will be chosen at random on July 4.
