Asheville Tea Party to host ‘Machine Gun Social’

From the Huffington Post:

A North Carolina Tea Party is getting creative with a fundraiser slated for next month.

On Sept. 29, the Asheville Tea Party is hosting a “Machine Gun Social” at an indoor arms range in Brevard, North Carolina.

According to the event’s flyer, attendees can give $25 for a 30-round magazine on a 9mm submachine gun of their choice — an HK MP5, an Israeli UZI or a Swedish I. Guests can spend $35 for 30 rounds on an AK47, while the most ambitious of Tea Party patriots can drop $50 for 30 rounds on an M16.
