WRAL reported these selecting the Glock handgun had to attend Youngsville Gun Club and Range to endure the requisite background checks so as to take possession of the firearm.
NC Council of Churches director Jennifer Copeland was apoplectic over the promotion: “They’re giving away guns that are going to be lodged in a house somewhere, and will potentially create gun violence and gun death. It’s mind blowing to me, that an organization that I think of as trying to provide health care to the people in the community is partnering their healthcare with gun death.”
Attorney Ron Shook commented on the giveaway, saying, “The concern here is that we’re not having firearms transferred to folks who do not qualify to possess them. This could be folks with criminal histories, mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuse issues, restraining orders against them — or in the case of a handgun — under the age of 21,”
A background verify for a firearm buy asks about legal historical past, psychological well being, drug habit, and many others., and Gladwell made clear taking part sufferers had to be 21 or older.

The Glock 19 is among the fashionable firearms of all time. It is a 9mm pistol extensively used for hid carry and residential protection.
