From New York Daily News-
An Oregon pastor who promised to destroy the AR-15 rifle he won at a girls softball team's raffle has dismantled the weapon, and is turning its remains into gardening tools.
Jeremy Lucas, an outspoken anti-gun advocate, purchased $3,000 worth of raffle tickets in July to ensure he'd win the prize. The softball team, made up of 14 to 18 year olds, hosted the raffle in order to pay for a trip.
"I wanted to win it so I could destroy it or turn it into something else and take it out of commission," Lucas told NBC affiliate KGW.
