N.H. police chiefs should rethink gun raffle

I could not believe what I read in last Sunday’s Globe about New Hampshire police chiefs’ plan to hold a gun raffle (New England in brief). In light of what happened in Newtown, Conn., and all of the controversy over gun control, how could the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police go ahead with a May RAFFLE that would include several semiautomatic weapons?

It doesn’t matter that the raffle was organized before the Newtown shootings. We should not put more guns in the hands of people who really do not need them.
