Charlotte Sheriff Hosting Gun Raffle To Raise Funds For Re-Election Campaign


The man in charge of preventing gun violence in Mecklenburg County is about to give away guns to raise funds for his reelection campaign.

The “Re-Elect Sheriff Carmichael Gun Raffle” will be held on February 18th, 2018 from 8am to 12pm. Tickets for the raffle will cost $50 each, or you can buy 3 for $100. At the event, Sheriff Carmichael will be raffling off 4 assault weapons, 8 pistols, and 3 hunting rifles.

The Facebook event was created by the Committee to Re-Elect Irwin Carmichael for Sheriff.

“Support the Re-Elect Irwin Carmichael for Sheriff campaign by buying your raffle tickets for a chance to win these great guns,” the event description says.

Reporter Kirstin Garriss recently interview Sheriff Carmichael – when asked about his gun raffle, he said, “a lot of folks that support me, support the second amendment…”
