Facebook has since reinstated Pittsburgh Tactical Firearm’s page, with heavy restrictions. One of which is to never do another gun giveaway.

“I think they’re trying to make an example out of us.” Lowry believes.

“We follow all local state and federal laws, you have to, I’m not going to go to jail over a contest.” Lowry added.

Lowry said that he set up forms on his shop’s website, where people can sign up for his firearm giveaways from now on.

And those that think like him have supported the gun rights movement by using their wallet. For instance, Lowry says that after Sandy Hook, he has seen a huge jump in gun sales.

“Two days after the shooting, we sold 95% of our stock out,” says Lowry.

Robert Mangino is live every weeknight from 7-11 p.m. on NewsRadio 1020 KDKA.
