Something tells me that the Little League will make a fortune with this raffle…

(Todd Starnes) –A youth baseball league in central Illinois is in desperate need of cash – so they’ve decided to auction off an AR-15 assault rifle.

The Atwood-Hammond baseball league said they only raised $10 with last year’s raffle. So a local gun shop provided the league with a Rock River Arms Tactical Operator Two .

“My phone has been ringing off the hook,” said Charidy Bucher, co-owner of the Atwood Armory shop. “The response has been tremendous.”

Bucher said her phone has been ringing since 4:30 a.m.

“People from out of state have been calling,” she said.

She said the winner of the rifle will also receive 260 rounds of ammunition.

“Ammo is just as hard to get as the firearms these days, unfortunately,” she said. [..]

(WANDTV) –….Atwood Armory co-owner Charidy Butcher said the winner must go through the same process as anyone buying a gun.

“[They] will have to go through a background check just like they were purchasing the firearm from us,” she said.

That includes filling out necessary paperwork and obtaining copies of a FOID card and drivers license. [...]
