Gun Raffle Update

3 Straight Shooters Do Their Part for the Children.

This is the same school district I discussed in School raffles gun, since "Bake sales are a thing of the past."

"First prize in the raffle is a Kimber rifle, [8400?] a Leupold scope and two boxes of ammunition, together valued at $1,300." While, "Second prize is a Marlin Ducks Unlimited .22-caliber rifle."

I couldn't find a report of how much they raised - the raffle was today at noon - but the LA Times did report that, "The original 10,000 tickets Ellison ordered have already been sold. She has ordered an additional 2,000." At a dollar per, or 25 for $20 this is a healthy bit of money raised.

This is being done to build a fence to keep a sexual predator off a junior high school campus.

Update: The Smallest Minority tells me that the rifle is a Kimber 84M in 7mm-08. MSNBC did a hit-piece on the raffle. The Smallest Minority wrote about it here.
