(KMOV.com) -- An Oregon, conservative group is once again raffling off an AR 15 rifle.

The group says the success of two previous raffles have prompted a third, with tickets selling for $10.

All entry fees will fund the Multnomah County Republican Party. According to party officials, feedback on the raffles has been positive, despite an uptick in high-profile national gun crimes.  

“Honestly I can say this. I’ve not heard any negative feedback at all,” said spokeswoman Anne Marie Gurne. “The only negative feedback tends to be from the media.”

The 2014 raffle will be held on Martin Luther King Day, and is designed bring attention to what they perceive is a denial of gun rights.
