Kids Programs Raffling Dozens of Guns to Promote School Safety
There's nothing like a good raffle, silent auction, and spaghetti dinner with watery tomato sauce to open pocketbooks for school safety. Instead of raffling off an iPad and a couple of T.V.s, states on opposite sides of America are giving away boomsticks. It's for the kids.
A school in Louisiana will be raffling off 30 constructs of steel and lead to keep children safe:
Part of the fundraising efforts includes a raffle for two AR-15 rifles. As a matter of fact, 30 guns in total will be given away during the raffle. The money generated is expected to be about $30,000 and proceeds will go back to help keep students safe.
Gun store owner supplying the weapons:
"It’s a legal firearm to own. It’s not a fully automatic weapon, it functions just like any other semi-automatic weapon. The only other sentiment is how it looks."
Poor black sheep of the firearms family. It's not his fault he looks so badass. Black steel should be added to states' "nondiscrimination" laws.
Meanwhile, in Oregon:
An Oregon youth softball program has decided to move forward with plans to raffle off an AR-15-style assault weapon as part of its fundraiser.
The Lady Dragons fast-pitch softball program of Dallas, Oregon, is hosting the fundraiser for equipment, field improvements and to help ensure registration fees remain low for families. The program has teams for girls ages 10-and-under through 16-and-under.
There seems to be a trend amongst parents: wanting to arm the good guys to counter the effects of the bad guys. Funny, the communities around these programs seem supportive as well. Though "funny" isn't really the right word. Sane, worthy of applause, and endlessly hopeful for the state of humanity seems more on par. Descriptions matter.
As the gun debate rages hotter than Hillary's special cavern in hell, the media is making solutions hard to find. Liberal media ignores cues taken from shootings where the bad guy was stopped by a good guy with a gun. Such a difficult concept for them to wrap their addled minds around.
Considering the Constitution, current gun laws, and historical mass shootings, the solution is evident. It's staring Americans in the face more directly than an elk through a scope from 30 yards. Arming citizens helps to neutralize the true ugly ducklings of society. Good guys with guns win big time.
It's possible to debate guns in a civil manner. Observe:
