Arizona Republicans Have Gun* Raffle*

Gabrielle Giffords

On January 8th a crazy man with a gun, Jared Loughner, shot 18 people in Tucson, Arizona, USA.  Six of them died and many, including congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was the intended* victim,* were badly injured.*
On August 26th Republicans in Giffords’ district held a raffle for a Glock handgun, the same type of gun used in the shooting.
“Get yourself a new Glock 23.40 cal handgun for just 10 bucks – if your name is drawn,*”  the announcement* says, next to a picture of the gun.  The winner also got 36 bullets* and a carrying case.*

Vocabulary:
gun – zbraň
raffle – tombola
intended – zamýšlený
victim – oběť
injured – zraněný
be drawn – být vylosován
announcement – oznámení
bullet – náboj
case – pouzdro
Question for discussion:  
Was it a coincidence?
