A friend of mine at the Orange and Blue Observer in Illinois forwarded me this email:


From: Illini Conservative Union
Subject: Announcing statewide .50 cal rifle raffle


Announcing "Molon Labe Blago" - a project to raffle a .50 caliber rifle
on college campuses across Illinois.

We invite all Illinois conservative groups to participate in this 2nd
Amendment event. Read the details on our website: www.molonlabeblago.com

This is an excellent opportunity to make some $$$, even if you can't
hold a raffle in your area. Get your campus involved!

Sponsored (so far) by:

Editor, The Orange and Blue Observer www.theorangeandblueobserver.com



We here at the Tiger Town Observer in Clemson recently pulled off the AK-47 drawing and we just wanted to let everyone know about our friends in Illinois fighting the good fight as well.

The guys there are really great.

Illinois gun laws are ridiculous. It's good to see people are trying to stick it to the man!

It may be a vulcan, but if it pisses off the gun-grabbers, it must be good!

Yeah but our rag (the Daily Texas) is about as bad as they get. YCT could do something though.

The power of arfcom.Ilive 10 miles from the campus, but the first I hear of this is from some guy in TN. I'll sign up next week.

I went to a small PA university and our department raffled off a few rifles and shotguns to raise money for our campus student organization.

This was maybe 7-8 years ago, don't know if thye still do it. We raffled a Remington 700 in .308, Remington 870, and a couple of other "hunting" arms.

I wanted to raffle off EBRs but that didn't happen. Oh yeah, and all the raffles brought in a lot of $$$$$.

And I thought you meant Idaho. Sure shocked me - the faculty and the alumni newsletter is pretty liberal, even if the students as a general rule are not.

I am with the organization (orange and blue observer/ Illini conservative union) that is raffling this. Its been pissing off libtarted faculty and students. Anyone in illinois is eligible (grab your wallets arfcom)
