    Levi Patterson, the coach of a 9-and-under baseball team in Neosho, Mo., told The Star the idea was conceived before the shooting in Parkland, Fla.

    Patterson said by phone Saturday that he considered finding a different raffle item after Wednesday’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, but ultimately decided to “turn it into a positive thing” after “getting the hate.”

    I was taught to shoot a .22 rifle before I was 10. By 12, I used the 12 guage. That was normal when I was young.

    The AR will be won by an adult, not a 9 yr old....

    I’ve been around firearms my whole life, they’re as normal as tools in a tool box.

    Never once thought of shooting it up and the only thing I could think of that would cause that would be forced confiscation and that will never happen.

    I guess the 9y.o. decided that raffling BB guns didn't get him enough publicity ?

    I never saw a reason to join and chances are If you need the NRA to be a rifle or gun owner It's most likely you have no idea what to do with the weapons once they are in your possession

    Nothing to do with a 9 yr old, except to raise money for their organization. Chances to win an AR for a $5.00 ticket get bought. Happens all the time in my area. Nothing unusual.

    Without the Second Amendment we wouldn't have the First Amendment. The first gives people the right to criticize Trump. Try criticizing a national leader in an Islamic or Communist country where there are no rights to keep & bear arms.

    Good point !

    Since your on your soap box Where were the human rights for the students who were executed without a trial ?

    I do believe it's your constitutional right to a trial before your sentenced to a death penalty
    Unless we now live in a 3rd world country ?

    Let me know

    Evil exists. More and more, kids play video games or retreat to their Mommy's Basement to be alone, instead of learning to socially adapt and play well with others. The National Educators Association lobbied against arming teachers and having concealed carry on school grounds, so laws for more protection failed. The only way to stop a shooter is to have enough armed that shooters can be taken down instead of letting them roam free.

    It's like when the Repub Congressmen were gunned down. The only armed people on the scene were Steve Scalise's Capitol Police assigned Security. He had almost left before the shooter arrived. Had he and his team left, there would have been no one to stop the shooter, and it would have been like shooting fish in a barrel.

    The human rights for senseless killing of thousands of young men in Chicago where there are some of the strictest gun laws in the US seems to be ignored by the media. Blaming everybody but those who pull the trigger is now acceptable. Every school shooting is tragic. These sub humans would not go into a school to kill if they knew there was a bullet waiting for them there.

    Most of those Florida kids haven't a clue about Chiraq and their worthless gun laws.
