Maryland lawmaker holding controversial fundraising event

Raffling off AK-47

A Maryland politician has come under fire for his attempt to raise money.

ABC News is reporting Anne Arundel County Delegate Don Dwyer is selling tickets to a May fundraiser where he will be raffling off an AK-47.

But Dwyer isn't letting the criticism he's receiving bother him.

The politicians says, "Don Dwyer says what he believes and if you don't like it then you can un-elect him. Fortunately for me, I keep getting re-elected."

Dwyer has vowed to protect and defend what he calls a "God given right to bear arms."
