Can't it just become a informal get together?

Talk to you local legislator. Colorado got the lottery and gambling but still lets other charities function.

What does a GUN CLUB have anything to do with Charitible Gaming Laws? Do you hold a raffle or something?

That's not right, I would challenge it.

Just one MORE example of pols making laws when they have no fucking idea what they *REALLY* do or how they'll interact with the ASSLOAD of dumb laws already on the books.

I hate what the state lottery stands for... If you managed it, or if a corporation managed it, it would be called illegal gambling and viewed as the greedy taking advantage of the weak. If a state monopoly does it, it's a fine method of revenue enhancement. The damage to the weak is the same either way. So much for the rational for preventing companies from running one...

Oh well, it's probably the only way the the state gets real monies from the 'poor'.

how is a gun club a non profit group? If this was the friends of the NRA dinner, Ducks Unlimited, etc then I would raise hell, however if this dinner is for "bubba's brigade and kill house" then there might be an issue, I think we all need some more details.

As for the state of TN, tell that bitch running the lottery to donate part of at $350K a year she makes to your cause.(not likely it will happen, even more so if she is a West TN rep related to the Fords)

Huh??? Paying an entry fee for a dinner violates gaming laws?

The .GOV is generally FUBAR, but that's the most bizarre thing I think I've heard yet.

Many gun clubs, where they are owned by the membership and are incorporated are non-profit. All money raised and collected is used to maintain and improve the club and no money is considered profit or income and is not taxed. No different than any other non-profit group.

That was a big mob racket for years.. Running numbers. Underground lottery. Word was the odds were better in those illegal games than in the state lottery.

Lottery = tax on stupidity

Since stupid people usually consume tax dollars at a higher rate, I have no problem taxing em higher.

I agree it's time.

You need to raise the bloody flag, storm the battlements, head for the Capital and shoot all the legislators. Definitely this is too much. MY GAWD are you sheep? You need to start shooting, Wow, can't pull names out of a hat. Yeah. Revolt NOW! Revolt NOW!

I would contact the Friends of the NRA group in your area, they do similiar things at their dinners as well( no trucks through) but you can buy chances for shotguns, artwork, gear etc, in additon to other things, they are also non profit, so see what their stance is on this.

uh....arn't laws like this the reason every raffle ticket i've ever purchased had "donation amount $XXX" rather than a price on it?


Exit the box, there have to be 1001 ways around the stupid law.

I lived in TN for just under 4 years. I always thought that it was funny that you could see bars and strip joints all over the place, the yellow pages in Nashville has several pages worth of "escort" services, yet you could not buy a scratch ticket because that would be wrong.

Is TN screwed up? Maybe I should scratch them off my "warmer states worth retiring to" list.
