CMMG, a popular manufacturer of AR-pattern rifles, and the most delicious tactical bacon a person can buy, is raffling off a custom, one-of-a-kind Mk4 D special Colorado Citizens Protecting Our Constitution-edition rifle to raise money for the upcoming recall elections of pro-gun control Colorado senators.
Anyone donating at least $5 to Colorado Citizens Protecting Our Constitution fund with the donation code “CMMG” will automatically be entered into the raffle. It’s that easy.
“By contributing at least $5 to the campaign and using the donation code: CMMG — you will be entered in a drawing with a chance to win a new CMMG rifle,” the group said in the news release.
“Colorado Citizens Protecting our Constitution is campaigning to recall Colorado Senators Angela Giron and John Morse and they need your help,” reads the CMMG Facebook page. “In July, Colorado had sweeping legislation aimed at disabling their citizens’ Second Amendment rights go into effect and CCPOC wants to recall the biggest supporters of the legislation, Senators Giron and Morse. With your help CCPOC can send a message to the state of Colorado — and the country — that laws like bans on magazine capacity over 15 rounds and background checks for every firearm transfer are not tolerable.”
Colorado passed several new restrictive gun control laws early this year, including a magazine ban and mandatory background checks, as well as adding a tax on every gun transfer. While unpopular, the laws were passed with the support of Vice President Joe Biden and Mayor Mike Bloomberg of New York. And Bloomberg just donating $350 million to the Giron and Morse reelection campaigns, according to local media.
The gun control package passed in Colorado is being hailed by pro-gun control organizations and politicians as a model for the rest of the country.
Immediately following the passage of the new laws, grassroots organizations formed to get signatures to force a recall election of several state senators, and were successful to the point where Sen. Angela Giron (D. Pueblo) and Senate President John Morse (D. Colo. Springs) are headed back to the ballot in September.
The winner of the raffle is getting a solid rifle with great furniture.
