AR-15s are one of the main weapons used in mass shootings, so naturally a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate was encouraging his supporters to build the dangerous military weapons.

Austin Petersen is desperately trying to win Missouri’s Republican nomination to run for Democratic incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill’s seat. The primary was scheduled for Aug. 7, but Petersen was expected to lose after his opponent Josh Hawley was endorsed by Donald Trump.

However, desperate times can many times call for hateful measures. Hence, Petersen said via an email to his supporters that he will “giveaway” a “milling machine” that can build “untraceable” AR-15 rifles, according to The Kansas City Star. He claimed the so-called “prize” will “trigger a few more liberals and mainstream media.”

The Riverfront Times explained that a milling machine is “somewhat akin to a 3-D printer, only it’s capable of fashioning aluminum and not just plastic — allows users to create so-called ‘ghost guns’ untraceable by law enforcement. There’s a long waiting list to get your hands on one of these machines; prospective customers must resort to paying a $250 deposit and biding their time until 2019.”

Peterson reportedly received the milling machine from a donor and he is now taking raffle entries. He will chose a winner on election night.

Petersen is a serious proponent of guns.

“Your right to bear arms is a fundamental, unalienable right protected by the Second Amendment,” his site reads. “The government has no power to take away your means of self-defense.”

Although it is doubtful Peterson will win, let’s hope this man stays far away from Congress.

    If you can’t beat em, find out who is (or when) selling these weapons legally and buy one. The arms race is on. You can sit back and “wish” it away, but it is getting worse. My entire Family is training on weapons and how to be responsible gun owners. I can’t afford to leave them unprotected. To me this is becoming as essential as academic achievements. Proficiency with a fire arm in today’s world is essential.

  2. The irony is, he stands just as good a chance as anyone else of having a hole blown through his ass with the Ghost Gun as anyone else. Now that would be a hoot!

      What have they ever been afraid of? Whites are the original terrorist of the world everything from slavery, the Holocaust, World Wars, stealing other nations natural resources and oil. It’s not fear that attracts them to guns and violence it’s just the barbaric nature of who they are as a people. Ask yourself, what kind of people would blow up a black church and kill 4 little girls practicing choir songs. Bombing churches someone’s sanctuary, lynching black men and then posing for pictures with the dead hung bodies, killing Emmett Till, a lie told by a white woman. This is who they are this is the way they’ve always behave since the beginning of time. You don’t have to provoke them or do anything to them.
