Why this pastor spent $3,000 in church funds to win a raffle with an AR-15 as the prize

From The Washington Post-

The Rev. Jeremy Lucas had just returned to Oregon from a family vacation back home to Alabama, the deep south state where he was first introduced to guns and where, as a kid, he learned to shoot a rifle, when he pulled out his phone and started scrolling.

It had been just days since the deadly mass shooting in Dallas that left five police officers dead and seven wounded. They were targeted by a black man with three guns, including an assault rifle, while working a Black Lives Matter protest. That same week, two black men, Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, were shot and killed by police, the incidents captured on video and circulated worldwide. Only one month earlier, 49 people were killed in the country’s deadliest mass shooting at an Orlando gay nightclub.
