Oregon pastor plans to destroy AR-15 won in rifle raffle: 'This gun will never be used for a mass shooting'

From The Daily News-

An outspoken Oregon pastor known for his anti-gun stance plans to destroy an AR-15 rifle he won in a raffle conducted by a girls’ softball team.

The Rev. Jeremy Lucas, a pastor at Christ Church Episcopal Parish in Lake Oswego, Ore. spent $3,000 to purchase 150 tickets at $20 apiece to secure the winning ticket.

Lucas, in the wake of so many heinous acts committed using AR-15 style weapons, believes winning the rifle serves a greater purpose.

“This gun will never be used for a mass shooting," Lucas said in an interview with Oregon's KGW news. "This gun will never be used for any of those tragic events that we pray for, that we hold moments of silence for. No one will ever hold a moment of silence because this gun has done that thing. And that made me pretty happy."
