Photograph: George Frey/Reuters A gun shop in suburban Chicago has canceled a planned raffle of a semiautomatic rifle to benefit victims of the nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida. On Thursday, Vic Santi, director of marketing at Second Amendment Sports, told the Guardian: “People who are more for the second amendment are very much behind [the raffle] and requesting tickets.” Santi said he and the store’s owners considered the shooting in Orlando a “terrorist attack” and a “hate crime” and felt the raffle was a way to show support for those affected by the attack.
