S.C. Candidate's 'Machine Gun Social'

Talk about cold, dead hands. Dean Allen, who is running for South Carolina adjutant general (an office that governs the state’s National Guard, among other things) hosted a “Machine Gun Social” fundraiser Saturday. Allen’s event drew 500 people and featured the giveaway of a $700 AK-47 semiautomatic rifle, reports Talking Points Memo. “I like to tell people I’m not the country-club conservative. I’m the machine-gun one,” Allen said. He explained that the event aimed to “celebrate” the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms.
