Nearly 30 Guns Being Raffled for High School Athletics Fundraiser


Mississippi Today reports that the Thirty for Thirty raffle will give away a prize each day during the 31 days of October and 28 of the prizes are firearms.

Winners must “[pick] up their prize directly from Van’s Sporting Goods, a local outdoor store, and must meet ‘all qualifying criteria.””

A Facebook post by Brandon High shows the guns available to win during the raffle include a Sig Sauer P365 9mm, a Smith & Wesson MP9 Shield 9mm, a Beretta APX-A1 9mm, a Henry Lever Action .22 Magnum, a Ruger American .22 Magnum rifle, and a Thompson Center 5566 30-06 rifle.

Other prizes include cash and a Pelican Elite 50-quart cooler.


Brandon High School Principal Bryan Marshall commented on the raffle saying, “There’s lots of gun giveaways in Mississippi that I know of. Most people do it the same way, nobody actually handles a weapon because you can’t just give a weapon away without it being registered, you’ve got to go through the process.”
