Ya know, when you raffle a gun for a charitable cause, the gun haters quickly self-identify for your convenience.
It always happens.
In fact, you don’t even have to raffle a gun, but just offer it as a sales bonus or incentive, like one car dealership did recently – offering a free shotgun on the purchase of a new car.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote about a girls’ softball team raffling a Taurus Judge to raise money.
You would think the end of the world is near. A person who didn’t even have the courage to identify themselves started the mainstream media knee-jerk reaction.
LOGANVILLE, Ga. — A girls softball team is raffling off a handgun as a fundraiser and some parents don’t think that’s a good idea.
One person who only identified themselves as a disappointed parent sent Channel 2 Action News the flyer advertising a Taurus Judge revolver as the grand prize.
They believe this is an inappropriate fundraiser for a youth sports team, and some other parents agreed.
“I just think it’s not a good idea,” Diana Smith told Channel 2’s Carl Willis.
She’s not affiliated with the Georgia Heat Select ’05 team in Loganville, but her children play on the same fields at West Walton Park.
We remind you of the AR-15 raffle the Arcola Little League did in East Central Illinois.
The caterwaulers howled, but in the end, the Little League group raised $31,500. The previous year, they failed to raise even $100.
