Top Down in Pima With a Glock 9 Handy

Evan McMorris-Santoro floods the zone on the outrageous story of the Pima County GOP -- that would be the GOP in the largest county in Gabby Giffords's district -- raffling off a Glock .45 as part of a fundraiser. The former local GOP chairman: Outraged. The Democratic chairman: Outraged.

I am... not outraged. Will it forever be in bad taste to mention guns in races held in Giffords's district? Possibly. But Giffords herself was a gun owner who said she was a "pretty good shot" with a Glock 9 mm.
