Yep, no need at all for the DHS to track right wing wackos in the US. WTF
For Windsor Hills Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, a gun is not a weapon of violence but a weapon of evangelism. According to KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City, the church had planned to give away a semiautomatic AR-15 rifle as a raffle prize to a teenager at a youth conference but canceled the controversial prize giveaway because one of the event organizers, Pastor Emeritus Jim Vineyard, couldn’t attend.
The church planned to use the giveaway as a draw for a youth conference it was hosting. Teenagers from as far away as Canada attend.
The church began the practice of giving away a gun last year, coinciding with a shooting competition. (Video of the competition had been posted on the church Web site until it was recently removed.) This year, from the start the gun giveaway was part of the marketing campaign.
Youth Pastor Bob Ross, who described the event as “21 hours of preaching and teaching throughout the week,” said to reporters, “I don’t want people thinking, ‘My goodness, we’re putting a weapon in the hand of somebody that doesn’t respect it who is then going to go out an kill. That’s not at all what we’re trying to do.”
Ross said the church will give away the gun, valued at around $800, next year instead.
