Or another despicable creep tries to get into congress as an enabler of mass murder. You'd think after Orlando they'd show some common decency, but you'd be wrong.

A Florida Republican state senator is giving away a custom-built semi-automatic rifle in a campaign Facebook contest a week after a gunman killed 49 people in Orlando.

Sen. Greg Evers, who is running for the 1st Congressional District seat, announced a "Homeland Defender Giveaway" contest to give residents of the district a chance to win a custom-built AR-15 semi-automatic rifle on Independence Day.

"With terrorism incidents on the rise, both at home and abroad, protecting our constitutional rights has never been more important," Evers said in a news release. "With all that's happening in the world today, I've never felt stronger about the importance of the Second Amendment in protecting our homeland than I do now."

The Homeland Defender AR-15 will also have the Second Amendment engraved in a metal plate just in front of the trigger guard.
