Guess who won the Brown County Democrats raffle for a gun?

At the Brown County Fair the Democrats booth had one heck of a raffle drawing. The prize in this raffle drawing was a Ruger Red Label Over Under 12 Gauge shotgun. Last year the gun being raffled was a Stevens Model 512 Gold Wing 12-gauge shotgun. That gun was won by Brown County Republicans Chair Jason Williams. This years the raffle drawing was won by none other than the author of this blog!

The Chair of the Brown County Democrats, Jennifer Slaight-Hansen, was very gracious about the fact that a Democrat once again failed to win the drawing. When I received a voice mail from Slaight-Hansen earlier this week I figured it was to let me know about a candidate event coming up. Nope instead it was to let me know I had won the raffle and a time needed to be setup so the gun could be transferred to me.

And yes, being a good Democrat she made sure a licensed dealer handled the transfer and made sure I am legally able to receive the gun.

Now I have proof for my wife that it pays off to hang out in the political booths at fairs!

PS. To make this even more of a coincidence with last year. Jason Williams happens to be my wife’s cousin. It is a small world.

PPS. Too many jokes about the Democrats arming a libertarian came to mind…

    Congratulations, Ken. You made the national Libertarian Party newsletter too. You seem to be on a roll this month. 🙂

    Congratulations on the big win!

    We need to organize a hunt this fall and try out these Joe Biden double barrel shotguns.
