A Republican state congressman stands behind his decision to give away a rifle similar to the use one used to kill 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando over the weekend. Tennessee Rep. Andy Holt will give away an AR-15 as a door prize for an attendee of his first annual fundraiser, titled "Hog Fest and Turkey Shoot," on June 25. The event will also include a turkey shoot. Holt defended his gift of choice, telling reporters: "It has nothing to do with the style of weapon. It has everything to do with who's behind the weapon."
