Heller announced the drawing during a “Roundtable” segment on Armed American Radio Sunday evening, informing host Mark Walters, Neil McCabe of Human Events, Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America and this correspondent that Serbu Manufacturing had been contacted by NYPDSWAT for a quote on this rifle, but refused the business, explaining that if it was not legal for New York gun owners to buy one, then they would not sell it to New York law enforcement.
“But YOU can have a chance of owning this superb .50 cal, semi-auto rifle!” JPFO announced on their website. “The JPFO logo is to be engraved onto the side of the action and this unique one-of-one rifle will have the serial number “JPFO 01”. A letter of provenance will accompany the gun from the manufacturer, stating that this rifle is 1 of 1, and it indeed is the one that NYPD could not have.
“Now, an Arizona charity is running a draw to benefit JPFO, and you could be the winner!” the announcement continues.
“This raffle is a great way to show the ‘Honorable’ NYC Mayor, what you think of the ‘SAFE Act’,” Heller told Gun Rights Examiner. “You can provide your own safety, with a .50 BMG rifle from Serbu.
“Now you might own the rifle that NYPD was turned down for on the background check,” he elaborated. “Only 1,000 tickets will be sold, and only $20 buys you a chance for a $6,700 gun! WAY Better odds than the lottery!
“You are also helping out the only Jewish gun rights org in the United States,” Heller reminds Gun Rights Examiner readers. “Let’s be very clear here — some of the most anti-rights people in this country about the RKBA are Jewish. But the most pro-freedom people on the RKBA, are Jewish, too! That’s JPFO! We put the gunpowder in ‘Never Again.’ Why not assist the Jews who have their heads screwed on right about your rights?”
Why not indeed, bless their hearts. More info here.
