We asked Tessner if he considered the recent
when deciding to raffle off a gun. Newtown
"Yes, that's the reason why I didn't do an assault rifle or anything like that," said Tessner. "I thought with everybody that's taking concealed weapons permit classes and all... women, men or whatever... we could do it that way. I didn't think it would offend that many people."
Wow, what a nice considerate man. We hope he wins.
