WILSON, N.C. — A raffle intended to raise money for a North Carolina elementary school is getting a lot of heat because the grand prize is a firearm.

Lucama Elementary School’s parent teacher association brought the idea to the principal, who along with the school’s superintendent approved the idea. The PTA donated the rifle for the September raffle.

The school’s guidelines for the raffle include not allowing students to buy or sell tickets and not allowing the gun to be on campus. However, some parents have still expressed concerns.
