TUCSON, Ariz. (KVOA) - A Tucson, Arizona Wal-Mart Superstore has cancelled a gun raffle after shoppers complained about the combination of guns and kids.
A flyer was in that Wal-Mart until earlier this week, advertising a raffle of three popular hunting guns at $10 a ticket. The flyer said the proceeds would go to the Children's Miracle network, including Tucson Medical Center.
After being contacted by the News 4 Tucson Investigators, a Wal-Mart spokesperson said, "Poor judgment was shown in choosing to conduct a raffle and in the selection of the prizes... we apologize to anyone who was offended or upset by either the raffle or the decision to cancel it."
Charles Heller, a spokesman for the Arizona Citizens Defense League, criticized the raffle's cancellation.
"It shows you the evil of political correctness. And I'll tell you right now, if Wal-Mart doesn't want to do this raffle, the Arizona Citizens Defense League will," Heller said.
