CHARLESTON, WV-(Ammoland.com)- Would you get a COVID-19 Vaccine shot for a chance at winning a free gun or other prizes?

That idea is what West Virginia Governor Jim Justice is banking on to get the citizens of West Virginia that are currently avoiding getting a COVID vaccination shot to change their minds. The State will be raffling off five custom hunting rifles and five custom shotguns. The only way to be entered into the raffle is to get a free COVID vaccination. The Mountain State hopes that the incentives will push those avoiding the shots to get the vaccine for a chance of winning one of the prizes.

On Tuesday, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced the plan to convince West Virginians to get the vaccine shots. In addition to the ten firearms, the State will be raffling off a brand new custom outfitted truck, five lifetime hunting and fishing licenses, 25 getaways to the State’s parks, and two four-year scholarships to any state educational institution. The grand prize is one million dollars.

“To be eligible, you have got to get your first shot,” Governor Justice said. “When I start through these prizes … there’s going to be a run-on people getting their first shot. So go get them. Go get them so you’ll be eligible where we can draw your name, and absolutely you could win something that would be phenomenal.”

Everyone who has at least one dose of a vaccine will be eligible to win a prize from the State. The percentage of West Virginia citizens who have received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine outperforms the national average. Currently, 50.5% of all Americans have at least one dose compared to 51.5% of West Virginia residents. Multiple states have instituted lottery initiatives to sway citizens on the fence about the vaccines to get the shots.

The lottery will start on June 20 and run through August 4. The five hunting rifles and five shotguns will be given away during the first drawing on Father’s Day. The one-million-dollar grand prize will be drawn during the final day of the contest in August. The brand of firearms was not revealed in Governor Justice’s Twitter address.

West Virginia has seen success with incentives to get residents to get the vaccine shots. A week ago, The State started handing out savings bonds and $100 gift certificates to residents between the ages of 16 and 35 who became fully vaccinated. The number of people seeking vaccines has fallen over the past few weeks leaving States to seek ways to incentivize the vaccines.

The number of cases of COVID-19 has fallen drastically in the past few months. The number of new cases of COVID-19 is currently at the lowest level since March 2020, when the Country went on a two-week lockdown that lasted over a year. President Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” has been credited with the rapid development of the COVID-19 vaccines. Over the last few weeks, the Country has started moving to a post-pandemic stance. State Governors have been lifting mask mandates and social distancing restrictions.

West Virginia residents who already received the COVID 19 vaccines will automatically be entered into the lottery.

Ya, they are fully vaccinated with saline solution and not the real shot that they are trying to force us to take and to make prizes available to entice people into willfully buying in to drinking the cool aid. That’s why they still wear masks even though they publicized on tv that they are vaccinated. Ya right. I’m not sold on that.

I’m glad to see all the “believers” there replying to my post. its good to see the true character of a narrow minded person inflate their ego by spreading bad information to like thinkers . I’m sure this conversation would be alot different face to face . but because the ” smart ” people refuse to use a mask or get a vaccine then I guess you all will just keep fucking over the economy by keeping things closed . you all are doing a great thing keep up the good work . fucking dumb .

The “bad information” you refer to is being created and spread by the very Gubment people that you seem to trust.

I will reiterate. The WuFlu Jab is not a vaccine. It is an experiment and anyone who takes it is a lab rat.

That’s right, and now they are saying that some people suffer from enlarged hearts, some die from blood clots and some get the virus even though they got the shot and those who did get the virus need a shot anyway? Something smells here and it’s not fish. IMO, this is just the first of a series of virus that is going to be released on the public and I wonder after three or four of them have attacked the people that the different shots to counter it will work together to kill you. Ooops, we messed up, SORRY! If… Read more »

Remember that the freedom your “2A advocate” suggests includes freedoms you don’t agree with. I have no issues with vaccination – and am fully – but those who choose otherwise have that right also. When, in front of a Congressional hearing just a week or so ago, the heads of both the CDC and NIH (including Fauci) were each asked how many of their employees were vaccinated, all (3) replied maybe, at best, 60%. If the employees at the CDC and NIH are hesitant to get vaccinated, your vitriol toward the unvaccinated general populace seems strangely misdirected.

To answer the question, NO. I won’t get a vaccine developed in less than a year when teh H1N1 vaccine in development for over 100 years is only 40% to 60% effective. The last time I got one of those I was in bed for two weeks. I have not got one since in over 13 years and have not got the flu.

Get the shot for a hoax disease that if you get it you’ll have a 99%+ chance of surviving (better than any other flu or driving on the highways) and get a chance to die or have serious side effects (according to the CDC over 4000 deaths and over 15,000 side effects so far). Is a chance at a gun worth it? Only if you’re an idiot.

the lady who did most of the research on mrna (unpaid) had reservations of its use as no real side affect studies were ever done ,she worked out of someone else’s lab because no one would fund her research, she was almost fired from pen for not giving up her research. Her pay for not saying hey this is still not ready is stock in the two vaccine companies so she is quiet. if you have covid 19 a- symptomatic, vaccine can kill you the other problems will show to be more wide spread in years to come new heart… Read more »

The Jab should never been allowed out of the lab. Read the FDA’s own assessment. Wake up people, you are being lied to.

Go to page 42 middle paragraph. Read carefully.

To the somebody that down voted my earlier comment. I do not make up sensational information. I am using the the Gubments own documentation to support my beliefs.

The report shows that the Pfizer Jab showed statistically no better protection from the WF than a placebo. In some cases it was worse.

“Among 3410 total cases of suspected but unconfirmed COVID-19 in the overall study population, 1594 occurred in the vaccine group vs. 1816 in the placebo group. Suspected COVID-19 cases that occurred within 7 days after any vaccination were 409 in the vaccine group vs. 287 in the placebo group.”

There’s a lot of science and evidence that says the vaccines – which were hyper-rushed thru the development and testing process and funded/endorsed by de-population advocates like Gates – are simply not safe.

Our government lies to us every minute of every day, yet look at the throngs that took the covid thing hook, line, and sinker.

I’m proud to be a part of the problem!

It is called Freedom. My life, my choice. For someone that has 2A in their username sure doesn’t understand the rest of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Besides, this is NOT a vaccine. It is an experimental mRNA therapy. It cannot prevent you from getting the Wuhan Flu. A vaccine cannot be created unless it has been isolated; which the WF has not. Here is a view into why some people are hesitant. https://www.openvaers.com/covid-data If you read about the VEARS data, approximately only 1% of cases are actually reported. Huzzah PS. Calling people names only shows how narrow minded… Read more »

I’m more of a man than you’ll ever be for not taking the shot. If I were stupid enough to get the shot, it damn sure wouldn’t be to protect someone like you, or anyone else I don’t know, only a fool does that. But you go ahead and get it, pussies like you always fall in line and obey anything they’re told by “the authorities” as you’re usually just too lazy or too damn dumb to think for yourself.

your name calling and schoolboy chest thumping is not even a start down the road to conivincing ME to get his abominatioin of an injection. For starters, the WuFLu has a REAL infectioin rate lower than the seasonal flus we have waltzing thorugh our population every year. Further, the survivel rate, unharmed, for those who DO get it is far higher than the seasonal flu. I”ve never taken any of the flu vaccines. Why should I? Not to mention the mercury (thymerasol they call it, to hide the truth) in those things accumulates in brain and CNS tissue, and demonstrates… Read more »

Hell f – – – ing no!!!!! I could use a million dollars badly. I wouldn’t receive that poison into my body if they guaranteed me the million dollars, much less for “a chance” at it or a lesser prize. Too much stuff coming out about the Vaxxes for this over-hyped flu bug. Like Patriot Solutions below, I have not worn the mask and will not take the jab. God help anyone who tries to force me to take it.
