Multnomah County Republicans To Raffle Off Gun, Honor Lincoln and MLK

Written by Cort Johnson on January 14, 2014


The Multnomah County Republican Party will raffle off an AR-15 rifle as part of the annual Lincoln Day Dinner in February, saying it’s a way to “celebrate the legacy of two great Republicans who demonstrated leadership and courage that all of us still lean on today: Martin Luther King, Jr and Abraham Lincoln.”

The drawing will take place at the Lincoln Day Dinner on February 15th, 2014. Tickets are once again $10 apiece, or 12 for $100, and there is a hard cap of 500 tickets in the raffle.

Here is more of the official release:

Multnomah County GOP Chairman Jeff Reynolds said, “We are here to reaffirm our strong defense of the Second Amendment and the right to personal protection. The Bill of Rights is inviolable, despite what the gun-grabbers in Salem might try.”

Reynolds went on to say, “We’ve recently caught wind that the Democrats in Salem, led once again by Ginny Burdick, will attempt to take away our personal right to bear arms. The Multnomah County Republican Party remains steadfast in its dedication to defeating such efforts.”

Multnomah County Republican Vice Chair Anne Marie Gurney echoed these sentiments, saying, “Those who would erode our 2nd Amendment rights in Salem fail to recognize that Oregonians, no matter their party registration, are opposed to their efforts. Voters will make this known in the upcoming legislative session, but more importantly, on November 4, 2014. One right you just don’t try to take away is the right of an Oregonian to own guns.”

The Lincoln Day Dinner, at which the drawing will be held, promises to be a special event. Another great Conservative, Rafael Cruz, will be the keynote speaker, speaking of his inspirational escape from tyranny and embracing the American Dream. Multnomah County Republicans are dedicated to fighting for our 2nd Amendment rights, as well as everyone’s opportunity to achieve the American Dream. We recognize that those who oppose the unfettered, legal ownership of rifles are also attempting to put legislation through our upcoming legislature that will make it easier for criminals to own guns, and harder for hard working citizens to own one. The Multnomah County Republicans invite all those who would like to celebrate constitutional liberty to RSVP for the Lincoln Day Dinner and to purchase a raffle ticket at our website, According to Chair Reynolds, well over 100 tickets to the Lincoln Day Dinner have already been sold, and a sellout is expected. A quick sellout of the raffle tickets is also expected.
