DENVER — It’s campaign season. So it must be time for the candidate gun raffles.

Former Colorado state representative and current U.S. Senate candidate Tim Neville has already given away a semi-automatic rifle in what his campaign manager Joe Neville called a bid to get voters’ attention and underline his father’s support for gun rights. Now, Neville is offering a handgun.

Tom Lucero said he got the idea for his drawing for a pistol from his fellow Republican Neville and similar efforts in previous years across the country. The northern Colorado businessman and former member of the University of Colorado Board of Regents is gathering petition signatures in a bid to run for the Colorado House of Representatives,

Lucero says Republican voters in particular want to know candidates’ stance on gun rights.
