Village Passes Ban on Semi-Automatic Weapons, Issues $1,000 Fines Per Day if Guns Are Not Turned In

 

 

 

The East Canton Youth Baseball Association in Canton, Ohio, is raffling off multiple firearms, including an AR-15, to fundraise for the league.

According to The Repository, the association has held a gun raffle for the last five years, and association President David Spencer credited the revenue from it for the league’s low registration fees.

The raffle is set to take place April 29, the same day as picture day, and the featured prizes are an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, a 7mm bolt-action hunting rifle, a 12-gauge Remington shotgun, and a Taurus handgun.

“We look for the guns that reach out to different demographics,” Spencer told The Repository.

He added that some raffle buyers are sportsmen, which was the reason behind offering the 7mm bolt-action and the Remington 12-gauge. Others are “into self-defense,” which is where the handgun and the AR-15 come into play.

Spencer explained that none of the firearms will be at the event. Instead, the winner will go to DNB Arms in Louisville, where he or she can claim the prize after a background check.

“We do not own the guns,” he said. “We would never own a gun. This is not a private sale.”

The league is for kids from 5 years old to early teens, and Spencer said he expects to sell about 1,700 tickets at five dollars each or five tickets for $20. No parent is required to sell tickets, and it’s on a completely voluntary basis.
