A girls softball team in St. Helens, Oregon must have figured out that boring candy sales to buy sports equipment just don’t cut it anymore, so they decided to auction off an AR-15 assault rifle instead. Tickets for this raffle can be bought for $10 each or $50 for six tickets. Only 330 total tickets will be sold, and the winning buyer needs to pass a background check so that he’s not some dangerous sort. Yet, this unusual raffle item and poster has become controversial.
Sort of raises the bar for Girl Scouts and their boring cookie sales, huh?
