ATWOOD, Illinois (WAND) -An Illinois Little League is raising money by raffling off an AR-15 rifle.

The Atwood-Hammond little league's equipment is falling apart.

Last year their raffle only raised $10, so the Atwood Armory is helping them raffle off an AR-15 rifle.

Atwood Armory co-owner Charidy Butcher said the winner must go through the same process as anyone buying a gun.

"They will have to go through a background check just like they were purchasing the firearm from us," she said.
