Attendees to an event sponsored by the Commonwealth Foundation of Harrisburg, PA, will be able to fire rounds into a beat-up car to symbolize attacking liberal ideas. “LiveFreePA” will “celebrate the freedoms we enjoy and the ones that are coming under attack, whether by taxes, regulations or bans, some of our most important privileges are being compromised,” according to spokesman Nate Benefield.

GOP gubernatorial candidates Tom Corbett and Sam Rohrer are slated to attend, as well as Republican senate candidates Pat Toomey and Peg Luksik.

Each candidate will speak and then take aim at the “junker” representing policy ideas such gun control, property tax, cap and trade, government-run health care, taxes and regulations on items such as tobacco and alcohol, Benefield said.

“It’s just a unique way to say we’re against these policies — shooting them down,” he said of the idea this year to fire off bullets or shoot arrows at a vehicle. “I don’t really know where we came up with it, but it seemed appropriate.”

Also on hand for firing will be a cannon provided by the U.S. Armament Corps.

Sure, it’s “appropriate” if you believe violent imagery is the way to approach ideas with which you disagree.  And that cannon is a nice touch.  Next they’ll be fighting for the right to carry your own cannon with you to work.
