Really, they hold their meetings at a gun range?

MIAMI – A South Florida Republican said it was a mistake to shoot at a target with the initials of the Democratic congresswoman he is trying to unseat.

Candidate Robert Lowry made a brief statement to a local newspaper but refused to speak further Friday about the incident, which happened Tuesday during a weekly GOP meeting held at a gun range.

Organizer Ed Napolitano defended the gathering, as well as the use of targets that appeared to be gunmen with traditional Arab head scarves.

"That's our right," said Napolitano, president of the Southeast Broward Republican Club. "If we want to shoot at targets that look like that, we're going to go ahead and do that."

And they shoot at "arab gunmen with head scarves"?
and at the initails of a congress man?
What does this say to you? anything?
Is it disturbing or just "politics"?

  • I don't find their targets appropriate,

    But I don't see the general idea of meeting at a range too different from meeting at a golf course.

  • They can meet where ever they want, but if they met at a strip club then I would be offended. But, what he did most likley cost him the seat and this article was already discussed.

  • OK see this is why Peer interaction or separation/segregation is so important. I mean if a group of grown men does this I don't see anything wrong w/ it. However if there are minors, teens or young adults, I see it a litle more distrubing. You cannot teach a 1 year old that. Not everything that is good for the goose is good for the gander.
