    Little League raffles off AR-15 rifle to raise money

    Little League raffles off AR-15 rifle to raise money | The Lookout - Yahoo! News


    The Atwood-Hammond Little League partnered with the local armory for the raffle, which launched on Tuesday. "It has been going gangbusters," Charidy Butcher, co-owner of the Atwood Armory, told WAND-TV. “My phone has been ringing nonstop since 4:30 this morning. It’s just been crazy."

    Butcher said she's received calls from people as far away as Washington state wanting to enter the June 29 drawing. A ticket costs $20.

    What a fantastic idea!!!!


    Brilliant.

    I find it rather fascinating how there's such a strong gun culture and a lack of pro-education culture in the US

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    People who try to call civilian firearms "assault weapons" and standard capacity magazines for those firearms "high capacity magazines" have no room to make comments about the education of anyone.

    Yeah I don't think anybody cares. It is interesting to see the reaction of "gun enthusiasts". It's definately good marketing when your consumers knee jerk reaction is to throw money at anything gun related. Identity consumerism. It's like liberals and buying local but even more useless and dumb.
