RALEIGH (WTVD) -- A North Carolina gun-rights organization is taking aim at the Democratic presidential nominee with its latest promotion, the "Hillary Clinton Special."

Grass Roots North Carolina is giving supporters a chance to win an AR-15, 1,000 rounds of .223 ammunition, and a portrait of Hillary Clinton.

Get the picture?

If not, Grass Roots NC offers a not-so-subtle suggestion on its website:

(Of course, we won't tell you what to do with the photo, but when we ran a picture of Hillary on the front of our newsletter, we heard it was very popular at the range.)

The organization also says that "we all know that if Hillary Clinton is elected President on November 8, panic buying will ensure that by November 9, there won't be a gun (or ammunition) available for love nor money..."

On Wednesday, the liberal advocacy group N.C. Policy Watch called the raffle a "new and frighteningly horrific development," according to the News and Observer.

Grass Roots NC, which was founded in 1994, says it is a "non-profit, all volunteer organization devoted to educating the public about trends which abridge the freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, and engaging in grass roots activism to preserve those freedoms."

Tickets for the raffle are $10 each.
