We ran a piece about South Carolina Adjutant General candidate Dean Allen’s “Machine Gun Social” recently, an event at which you could spend $25 for a BBQ sandwich, a full magazine to shoot in an automatic weapon and a chance to win an AK-47. A few of you wrote in complaining that you didn’t get advance notice. Well, here you go: Allen is having another one at the end of the month.
Now, I have made no study of the South Carolina Adjutant General’s race whatsoever (the Adjutant General is the head of the National Guard). I have no idea of the issues involved, nor should this post be construed as an endorsement of Mr. Allen’s candidacy. However, it is definitely an endorsement of the Machine Gun Social as a campaign fundraising concept.
