Lucama school's rifle raffle causes stir
Lucama, N.C. — To raise money for class field trips, a Wilson County school plans to raffle off a rifle during its school carnival next month.
A member of the local chapter of hunting organization Delta Waterfowl donated a muzzle-loading rifle to Lucama Elementary School for its Sept. 14 Fun Fest.
Principal John Joyner obtained approval from Wilson County Schools Superintendent Sean Bulson to raffle off the gun, as long as students weren't connected with it in any way.
"It's an unusual fundraiser – kind of an unusual request – but at no time will this weapon be on campus," school district spokeswoman Amber Whitley said, noting that students also won't be allowed to buy or sell any tickets to the raffle.
Joyner couldn't be reached for comment Thursday.

Lucama is not far from me and had I known about this earlier I would have bought some tickets.

At least the school isn't Tossing youngsters out-on-the-street for eating their "POP-TARTS" into an 'almost', 'sort-of', gun shape or wearing mom's NRA T-shirt.

Good on the school for not going overly 'stupid' on the issue.

Kids seeing legal firearms involved in an act of charity and a capitalistic transaction for the benefit of children. The horror the horror!

That's great! I wish them nothing but good things. Let the conniptions commence.
Interest in the rifle is boosting the potential haul for Lucama Elementary from the raffle. Williams said 20 $5 raffle tickets were printed up initially, but at least 300 more are being printed to meet demand.

Those NC folks having their royal conniption fits should all just move to California or New York City where they'd be welcomed I'm sure.
I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
