ATLANTA, GA – An Atlanta-area sporting goods store is in hot water after its billboards caught the attention of Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

Adventures Outdoors put billboards like these around town, urging voters to bring in their “I voted” sticker for a chance to win a Glock handgun or Browning rifle.

Just one problem: it could be against the law. Georgia law prohibits anyone from giving or getting money or gifts in exchange for voting.  And get this: the store could face felony charges if that law is broken.

Conveniently, the store owner now says the raffle is open to everyone – regardless if they voted or not. What a peach!
