A little league football fundraiser in Ohio is raffling off a 9mm handgun.

Apparently, it’s worthy of headlines and even a writeup by an outlet in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The story is based on the fact that some (an unspecified number) parents are upset:

A little league football fundraiser raffle has some parents in Lorain County upset.

When you see the tickets, it’s not hard to notice a Glock 48 9MM handgun listed as one of the prizes.

So, parents being upset is a national story?

To add to the weirdness, the story added this at the end:

The ticket clearly states if the winner selects the 9mm, a background check must be done first.

And it’s also worth noting, this raffle is perfectly legal.

On the other hand, the news blast could end up helping the little league team.
