Campus Newspaper Raffles AK-47
Editor hopes to raise awareness for Second Amendment

His goal in life? Run the White House. Andrew Davis' goal for the week? Raise money for the newspaper he edits. "I just did a large expose on parking services." It's a conservative paper on Clemson's campus, pages known as delicious, conservative brain-food. "We make no qualms about being very biased of the right wing," he says. To help pay for printing costs, 20-year-old Andrew organized a raffle for a rifle: an AK-47. "We're hoping with this event to show people the AK-47 is no more dangerous than a knife or a car," he says.

Stashed in the basement of Clemson's library among thousands of books, on page 138 is Andrew's motivation. "The Second Amendment is one of our least appreciated that we have and probably the one that is most attacked. We hope this event will raise awareness for the Second Amendment," says Andrew. Not everyone on campus is pleased with the paper's idea. Andrew says he's heard from a faculty member and a student who plan to protest.


But he has found support from campus leaders. "The reaction from the administration has not been one to shut these people down but to let students exercise these rights," says Andrew. And that's a lesson this student hopes to take all the way to the White House. Raffle tickets go on sale February 27th through March 2nd. Organizers plan to offer them on campus near the main library from 9am until 3pm for a $5 donation. For more information you can e-mail Andrew at [email protected]

They have some bullshit rule that says they have to give tickets to anybody who requests them, and the liberal shitheads were requesting literally hundreds of tickets. We can and should still support their efforts by sending some cash to the paypal account in red in the quote.

Quote from their financial guy:

Hey all,

Just wanted to let everyone know that, since we really didnt fathom the depths to which these liberals will sink to destroy all fair chances of winning for legitimate donors, we've decided to basically shut the event down. We still plan to hold the drawing on Thursday afternoon and we'll be sure and let you know how that goes, but we just cant figure out a way to deal with these protestors between now and then.

We fully intend to talk to a lawyer and find out what rules we can get around, because, we WILL do this again and we will ensure that it is totally fair and we will be sure to make it open to all eligible citizens of the United States, including you good people. This was our first attempt and I can't tell you what a big splash it has made WORLDWIDE.

Some of you asked how you can donate to the Observer via PayPal. We have an account with them at: [email protected]. I just want to make clear that, should you donate to us at this juncture, it will purely be in support of the paper and carry no guarantees regarding the current drawing event. Know that we will use any donation to make plans for another event similar to this in the future and the continued publication of our great issues. Include your address with any donation and we'll put you on our one-year subscription list too.

Any ideas and advice still welcome. As far as our understanding of the laws go, limiting entry in any way shape or form is illegal. But we simply dont know.

God Bless.
If you want you can still send donations to support their newspaper to the paypal address in red in the quote.
