Local News

Civilians owning assault-style rifles a hot topic of debate the last couple of weeks.  Viewers are reaching out to us expressing concern over the fact that numerous semi-automatic guns, including an AR-15, are among the prizes at a local gun raffle.  We’re covering ‘Your Story’ tonight.

The Harborcreek ‘Little Huskies’ Wrestling Club is hosting their 26th Annual Gun Raffle this Saturday at the Harborcreek Fire Social Hall.  1,500 tickets were sold and 10 different guns are up for grabs, including a Delton Echo AR-15. 

We reached out to event organizers who have this to say:

“We follow all protocols and those who win guns must go to the supplier where all legal background checks and protocols required by law are done.  No guns are distributed at the raffle.  In light of recent events, we will evaluate gun selections for future raffles.”
