Jeremy Lucas, the Lake Oswego reverend who made national news last week when he announced that he would destroy an AR-15 he won in a raffle, may have run afoul of the law when he gave the gun to a parishioner for safe keeping without performing a background check.
Whether or not Lucas will be prosecuted remains to be seen, according to a spokesman for the Oregon State Police, who are looking into the case.
It started about two weeks ago when Lucas was perusing social media and happened upon a Willamette Week story on a girls softball league that was holding a raffle to sponsor the team’s travel to a tournament in California. The grand prize: an AR-15.
