Younger me on top of a truck full of cattle feed.

This is a $161,000 sweepstakes consisting of $50,000 cash, Chevy Truck, ATV, off road stampede 900 and a trailer in prizes being put on by the NRA.  I don’t know if you like the NRA or not, but this is an excellent prize and it doesn’t cost anything to enter by the alternate method.  Personally I don’t have anything against the NRA but I am not a member of that organization.  I think people should have a right in our country to own guns provided they get proper training and can be responsible.  Self defense, recreation, collecting and hunting are legitimate reasons to own a gun.

I have used guns in the distant past for recreation and to kill farm vermin.  We gave our guns away to people who would better appreciate them and some of those people were members of the NRA.  I am too ill to have the energy to shoot anyways.  I believe that we already have sufficient gun laws in this country and I suspect that further attempts at gun control laws are merely a veiled attempt at eventual confiscation of all guns as was done in Australia and the United Kingdom.  I understand the feelings of people whose loved ones have been murdered or injured by a criminal using a gun and I have sympathy for them. I understand why some of these victims are angry at guns used for evil purposes.

Criminals using guns need to be put in prison for an appropriate length of time to prevent them from hurting more people and to rehabilitate them.  The death penalty by firing squad is appropriate for anyone that purposely murders another person while in their right mind. The death penalty won’t bring the victim back to life but it will prevent the criminal from killing someone else.

Anyways, I could use the truck and free cash so I entered the sweepstakes.  The alternate entry method cost is zero which is within my price range.  The following link will take you to the sweepstakes entry page.

oldtruck This is a nice sweepstakes for an upgraded Toyota truck.  It may not run as long as our farm truck in the picture but it does look pretty.  I entered the sweepstakes.  Even if you don’t want the truck, you could always trade it in for a different vehicle or sell it.
