I reported yesterday about the raffle at Adventure Outdoors, where a Georgia state senator was upset that owner Jay Wallace is holding a raffle to give away a Glock pistol or a Browning hunting rifle.
At the end of my original post, I wrote:
I’m not sure how well the idea will hold up, considering there is a law in Georgia prohibiting anyone from offering money or goods in exchange for voting or registering to vote.
Well, like a dummy, I had forgotten that Jay Wallace took on Mike Bloomberg’s thugs, and won. I never should have doubted.
As it turns out Wallace had cleared the raffle with Georgia Secretary of State’s office before even starting the promotion.
Since I was looking at promotional material I was sent, I didn’t get a chance to read the fine print on the poster at the store, which says that the raffle is open to any person legally allowed to own a firearm in the state of Georgia, whether they vote or not. That clears the raffle, and Wallace has a letter from the Secretary of State’s office as proof.
Once again, a protest against a legitimate gun issue ends up bringing positive publicity.
Well played, sir.
I will let you know if I win.
