An Asheville chapter of the Tea Party is offering North Carolina residents a chance to win a rifle similar to that which was reportedly used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. The Asheville Tea Party posted the raffle for a DPMS Panther Oracle AR-15 to its website Monday. The raffle, which includes two 30-round clips and a carrying case, is only available to residents of North Carolina and winners must be able to pass all required background checks. According to a spokesman for the ATP, this raffle was planned prior to the shootings in Newtown, CT.
