Regular readers will recall that TTAG named the Wilson County School Board our Gun Hero of the Day for sticking to their guns: continuing with a rifle raffle despite (because of?) objections from gun-averse parents and outside agitators. WL provides an update . . .
Lucama Elementary School has a yearly Fun Fest organized by the parent-teacher association. This year, the local chapter of Delta Waterfowl donated a CVA Optima .50 cal muzzleloader and sold raffle tickets for $5 a piece. This caused a nice gun debate locally that was picked up by several statewide news organizations and even some national ones. They ended up raising over $10k from tickets purchased throughout the country. Quite the nice take from a $500 rifle, and in the end a local man won.
