The Huntsville Stars minor league baseball team is planning to give away the opportunity to win guns to fans in drawings at the July 3 game at Joe Davis Stadium.
The game is being billed as "2nd Amendment Night."
The Stars have clarified on Twitter than the promotion is a raffle and that the guns will not be given away at the stadium.
Stars general manager Buck Rogers said today there will be no guns given away at the game, only the raffle tickets redeemable at Larry's Pistol and Pawn. Guns are prohibited at all Huntsville Stars games.
Rogers said several organizations routinely raffle off guns.
"And since everybody's buying guns hand over fist and Larry's Pistol and Pawn wants to get involved in some sponsorships and they had a line out there a mile long (to buy guns)," Rogers said. "We're having a Second Amendment night to talk about things anyway. It's an educational night. No guns coming to the game. Nobody is giving away guns"
Rogers said the timing of the promotion -- the day before Independence Day -- is the ideal time to hold a Second Amendment celebration.
"Our approach on our Fourth of July show, we're going to do a night talking about the Constitution," he said. "We're handing out copies of the Declaration of Independence to all the fans coming into the game and making it a patriotic salute.
