Alabama Youth Football League Raffling Off Assault Rifle

An Alabama youth football league has stirred up controversy with their latest fundraising effort – auctioning off an AR-15 rifle.

Roger Taylor, chairman of the Millry Youth Football Association, says they’ve raffled off guns before and will use the money to buy helmets and shoulder pads.

He says raffling a gun is a ‘more practical’ idea in the south, saying “not everybody’s going to want a Yeti cooler”.
