I don’t have a problem with sports betting in casinos, but why is it legal for me to buy a raffle ticket from the state Department of Fish and Wildlife for a deer, elk, moose or sheep tag but not legal to buy a raffle ticket for a give-away hunt in some other state. I can buy a raffle ticket to win a hunt or a gun at a safari club banquet or Ducks Unlimited banquet or a bunch of other organizations but I can’t buy one from those same organizations for the same hunt if the ticket sales originate from out of state?
What is the reasoning behind this? From what I can tell it’s a giant double standard, It’s only legal if the state can profit. Rise up, comrades!
