ARKANSAS, February 16, 2010 – The Republican Party of Arkansas presented keynote Speaker Sarah Palin with an engraved Henry Repeating Arms Big Boy 44 Magnum rifle tonight at their fundraising event at the Verizon Arena in Little Rock. The rifle was personalized with serial number PALIN-001, the brass receiver was inscribed with ‘Presented to Sarah Palin – February 16, 2010 – Republican Party of Arkansas’ and the Republican Party of Arkansas’ logo was carved into the buttstock.

Palin began her keynote speech in front of a cheering crowd of 5,000 by thanking the Republican Party of Arkansas for the beautiful rifle, noting that she even called her son Track to tell him about it, and stated, “It’s great to be in a state where it’s okay to cling to your guns and religion.”

President Lincoln was presented with a Henry rifle during his presidency. It hangs in The Smithsonian and has become a priceless national treasure.

    I still really like Sarah Palin! I was quite disappointed to find out that she had decided not to run for president in 2012. She would make a better president than anyone in the current Republican field, and that’s saying something!!!!! Good on the Arkansas Republican Party & Henry Rifle company too!

    It is nice of the Henry Rifle to present the rifle to someone who knows how to use it and will stand up for the rights of Americans against the Progressive powers that be. Well Done.
