‘The Daily Caller’ Has Launched a Gun Giveaway

Tucker Carlson’s The Daily Caller will be giving away a gun every week until Election Day (November 6), an abhorrent promotional stunt to increase subscribers and, no doubt, drum up some attention.

The website is giving away a FMK9C1, which comes in three colors, is engraved with the Bill of Rights, and, of course, was made in America. That works out to 25 guns.

“Like most Americans outside Washington, DC, New York City and most of our nation’s news rooms, large numbers of Daily Caller readers love guns. These people are already looking to our new Guns and Gear section for the latest product reviews and Second Amendment news,” says Daily Caller publisher and CEO Neil Patel.

Stories now appearing in the “Guns and Gear” section include “She’s ‘Packing Pretty’ and Blogging About It” and ”Video: How to Buy a Used Pistol.”

In an April 23 New Yorker story by Jill Lepore, “Battleground America,” she writes, “There are nearly three hundred million privately owned firearms in the United States: a hundred and six million handguns, a hundred and five million rifles, and eighty-three million shotguns. That works out to about one gun for every American.”

Clearly, the last thing we need are more guns on the streets.
