I want a gun engraved with the Bill of Rights!

May 24th, 2012

From the Daily Caller:

 The Great Gun Giveaway – The Daily Caller (US!) will be giving away an American-made 9mm pistol every week between now and November 6th. Publisher Neil Patel has the skinny:

“’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,’ said Neil Patel, Publisher and CEO. ‘Thanks to Guns and Gear editor Mike Piccione, and the generous support of FMK, we are excited to have the opportunity to give those loyal and engaged readers the chance to win a new pistol every week leading up to the election.’” The pistols come in three different colors and are engraved with the Bill of Rights. Click here to enter today.

Though the Bill of Rights is not printed in its entirety. Shocker, but they only get the operative clause of the Second Amendment–“right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

This is probably not a good substitute for a pocket Constitution.

Plus transferring guns is a pain in the ass (I know–a friend is getting married and I considered gifting him a gun. It is really, really tough). I wonder what happens if someone in D.C. wins this gun? I don’t think this type of semi-automatic 9 mm with a decent-sized magazine is even legal. Or maybe that’s the point?
