West Virginia offering gun giveaways if people get the vaccine


West Virginia’s Governor knows what the citizens of his state wants – GUNS – and is using that to try and get people out to get the vaccine:

NY POST – West Virginians who get the COVID-19 vaccine will be entered into a drawing to win prizes including custom firearms and $1 million, Gov. Jim Justice announced Tuesday in the latest initiative by a state government to boost inoculation efforts.

June 20 — Father’s Day — will mark the first of a series of weekly drawings running through Aug. 4, the Republican governor said during a press briefing.

“To be eligible, you have got to get your first shot,” said Justice. “When I start through these prizes … there’s going to be a run on people getting their first shot. So go get ’em. Go get ’em so you’ll be eligible where we can draw your name, and absolutely you could win something that would be phenomenal.”

Prizes up for grabs in the June 20 drawing include five custom hunting rifles, five custom hunting shotguns, two tricked-out pick-up trucks and five lifetime hunting and fishing permits, said Justice, whose PowerPoint pitch included a photo of his bird dog, Jazz.

The Father’s Day drawing also includes two four-year scholarships to any West Virginia educational institution — for winners between the ages of 12 and 25 — as well as a $1 million grand prize, Justice said.

The drawing is open to West Virginians who received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine dating back to the winter, meaning early adopters won’t be left out in the cold.



I know some of you haven’t gotten the vaccine. Would a custom hunting rifle or shotgun make you change your mind?

Whatever you think of the vaccine, at least this governor is making it interesting…
