A church in upstate NY is planning an AR-15 Raffle. Here’s how the local paper covers it:
An upstate New York church pastor who supports gun ownership rights says he plans to raffle a legal AR-15 rifle during an upcoming Sunday service.
The Rev. John Koletas of the Grace Baptist Church in Troy tells local media that heâ€™s showing support for owners and hunters by giving away the modified weapon, the same type that was used to kill 20 children and six staff members at Connecticutâ€™s Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.
Well of course they have to mention Sandy Hook (although, wasn’t the AR-15 left in the car? Didn’t the mutant use handguns instead?) to impact their liberal readers.
BTW, since the article states that this is a “legal” AR-15 that complies with current NY gun laws, that means the gun being given away doesn’t even resemble the one from Sandy Hook. In fact, a NY Safe Act compliant AR-15 is like putting a bull with one ball out to stud.
Of course, this newspaper is so dishonestly trying to “scare” its low information readers that it also shows the following “file” photo of a clearly non-NY compliant AR-15:
Note that some of the ammo shown isn’t even for an AR-15. I suppose that if a church was raffling off a .38 special, they’d remind the readership that such a revolver was used in such-and-such a crime at one time and then show a picture of Dirty Harry with a .44.
