Pastor auctioning AR-15 rifle

Troy, N.Y. (AP) - A church pastor who supports gun ownership rights says he plans to raffle a legal AR-15 rifle during an upcoming Sunday service.
            
The Rev. John Koletas of the Grace Baptist Church in Troy tells local media that he's showing support for owners and hunters by giving away the modified weapon, the same type that was used to kill 20 children and six staff members at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.
            
The rifle for the March 23 raffle is being donated by a local gun shop owner who says the weapon complies with state gun laws.
            
The winner of the raffle must be at least 18, undergo an FBI background check and meet all state and federal laws before the gun is handed over.
