"I understand that there are different opinions out there," Vic Santi, store marketing director, told the newspaper. "We don't look at this as a gun issue. We look at this as a terrorism issue."
The Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence criticized the raffle as "distasteful and offensive."
"I'm glad people are trying to raise money," Colleen Daley, executive director of the Council, told the Chicago Tribune. "I just don't think it's the most appropriate way to do that. These guns are weapons of war, meant to kill large numbers of people in a short time, which is what happened in Orlando."
Second Amendment Sports will be selling raffle tickets from July 1 until the store's grand opening celebration on July 31. Each ticket costs $5.
The store will also donate an additional $2,000 to the OneOrlando Fund.
