State senator's campaign to give away free gun

      CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Sen. Lee Bright announced his campaign will be giving away a gun to promote his support of the Second Amendment.

      In an email from his campaign, he said one person will win a brand new Palmetto Armory AR-15.

      "In the wake of the horrific tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, gun-grabbers were sure they had the votes to RAM gun control in to law," the email said. "Thanks to the action of Second Amendment supporters all over the country, their scheme failed -- even despite my Republican Primary opponent, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham."

      "Friend, I don't know about you, but that betrayal wasn't one any Second Amendment supporter anywhere in the country will soon forget," the email continued. "In fact, it's one BIG reason I'm running for the U.S. Senate."

      According to the campaign website, one name will be randomly drawn on Feb. 15.

      The winner must be 18 years or older to be eligible for the giveaway. The website also says the winner will have to pass a background check.
