Proceeds from 100 Rifles Benefit Sick Kansas Girl

WICHITA, Mo. (AP) — A man is donating the proceeds from 100 .22 rifles to raise money for a southeastern Kansas girl with pulmonary hypertension.  The Wichita Eagle reports  that a New Jersey gun manufacturer so far has raised more than $52,000 for 4-year-old Grayson Sutton.  The Sedan girl faces thousands of dollars in medical bills and expenses to travel for treatment in a Colorado children's hospital every three months.  Gun manufacturer Anthony Imperato heard about Sutton through a friend of the family. He says the guns cost about $30,000 to produce. A sunflower and the phrase "Get well Grayson" are etched on each rifle.  Pulmonary hypertension is a genetic condition that causes high blood pressure and can lead to heart failure.
