Ohio Youth Baseball League Raffles Off AR-15


The East Canton Youth Baseball Association went through with their controversial raffle on Sunday. The league held the event as a fund raiser to help reduce registration fees.

The annual raffle, now in it's fifth year, usually brings in $5,000.

Participants had a chance to win a bolt-action hunting rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun and a handgun. But it was the AR-15, the civilian version of a U.S. military rifle, that really caused a national stir. Several mass shooting have been carried out with that particular weapon, including the Parkland, Florida, school shooting which left 17 dead.

Organizers said they would have tried something else, but candy sales and the like don't bring in enough money.
