Police Raffle Of AR-15 Assault Rifle Canceled

A group associated with the Belton Police Department near Kansas City has canceled plans to sell raffle tickets for an A-R-15 assault rifle.

The raffle was part of an annual fundraiser by the Belton Police Athletic Association, which raises money for the department’s DARE programs at local public schools. 

The prize was deemed inappropriate after last week’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. 

A teen gunman used an A-R-15 to kill 19 children and two adults.
