HARRISBURG – A conservative group’s shoot-’em-up fund-raising event is setting off fireworks across the political landscape – and has some candidates running for the hills.

The Commonwealth Foundation is offering attendees at its May 8 “LiveFreePA” fund-raiser and candidates’ forum in Lancaster County the chance to “fire a few rounds into a beat-up car bearing anti-freedom messages and icons.”

On Tuesday, foundation president Matt Brouillette wrote in an e-mail sent to media and foundation supporters: “. . . I hope you’ll join us May 8th to pump a few rounds (or fire a cannon . . .) into a beat-up truck bearing anti-freedom-policy ideas like ‘ObamaCare,’ ‘Card Check,’ ‘Cap and Trade,’ and other failed, wealth-redistributionist ideas.”
