Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) took his pro-gun beliefs to Twitter Wednesday, offering followers a rare opportunity.
Stockman informed the social media community that he is giving away a free Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle, pointing readers to a form on his website.
"Enter the drawing to win a FREE Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, almost impossible to find in stores and the number one firearm on the gun banners' wish list!," the post reads.
Within the tweet, Stockman also took a jab at President Barack Obama's efforts to enact gun control laws.

Stockman has been an outspoken proponent of protecting 2nd Amendment rights. One day after Connecticut signed its strict gun control laws into effect, he wrote an open letter inviting all gun owners to move to the Lone Star State.
“Come to Texas!!!” Stockman said. “Your rights will not be infringed upon here, unlike many local current regimes.”
Back in April, Stockman combined his pro-gun and pro-life beliefs, releasing a bumper sticker that left some scratching their heads.
