Saying This is a Bad Idea Just Doesn’t Quite Do It Justice….

Tip o’ the hat to Mock, Paper, Scissors for pointing this one out.  From MidwestDemocracy:

The Sunlight Foundation says Missouri Rep. John McCaherty’s campaign is auctioning a .223 caliber AR-15 semi-automatic “assault” rifle Aug. 27 to raise money.

Tickets cost $25, and 200 are available, according to a handbill for the event posted by the foundation. Click here for a link to McCaherty’s website announcing the auction.

In my opinion, auctioning off an assault rifle to the highest bidder is never a good idea.  But there is one little fact that pushes this from “bad idea” into “monumentally stupid idea” territory.

Suspected Aurora, Co. killer James Holmes used a .223 AR-15 according to reports.
