A plan to raise money for a Project Graduation party by raffling an AR-15 rifle raised some eyebrows.
No, the people asking questions weren’t gun-control advocates. They were gun aficionados.
They were concerned about the type of weapon being offered as a prize in a fundraiser for Project Graduation for the Texas City High School Class of 2015.
The logic behind their concern?
A deer rifle is for deer.
A shotgun is for quail.
A .308-caliber AR-15 with a laser range finder — mentioned in any connection with a school — is, well, just unfortunate.
