If you can pass a background check, you can win an AR-15 in a raffle

A raffle ticket and a clean record might just win you an AR-15 or a Glock in Floyd County. 

The raffle opened Tuesday to benefit the Choosing Healthy Activities & Methods Promoting Safety —

or C.H.A.M.P.S. — program, the Floyd Couny Sheriff’s Office said on social media. 

The program is a curriculum of classes designed to educate seventh grade students about making wise choices, the dangers of bullying, internet safety, gangs, peer pressure and drugs, alcohol and tobacco. 

Tickets can be purchased until April 30 for $5 each or $20 for five from a deputy at the jail or courthouse. Buyers can also get them in person from Sgt. James Womack at the sheriffs office.

The winning raffle ticket holder must pass a background check before getting their gun. 

If you don’t pass, your prize will be forfeited and deputies will draw again for the gun.

The drawing will be held May 1.
