Local youth baseball league raffles AR-15 rifle



ATWOOD -- A youth baseball league is raising money by raffling off an AR-15 rifle.

The Atwood-Hammond league's equipment is falling apart.

Last year their raffle only raised ten dollars, so the Atwood Armory is helping them raffle off an AR-15 rifle.

Atwood Armory co-owner Charidy Butcher said the winner must go through the same process as anyone buying a gun.

"[They] will have to go through a background check just like they were purchasing the firearm from us," she said.  

That includes filling out necessary paperwork and obtaining copies of a FOID card and drivers license.

If you'd like to enter the raffle, call Atwood Armory at (217) 578-2767.
