In celebration of God, Guns, and Country, one opportunistic Tennessee gun store owner, looking to cash in on the surge in gun sales that inevitably follows mass shootings in the U.S., is offering a discount to lure in customers. But not just any customers. This discount applies only to Christians:
As WVLT Local 8 reports:
“If Christians are going to be targeted, we need to protect ourselves,” said Brant Williams, Owner of Frontier Firearms. “The best way to protect yourself is with the best weapon available, and that happens to be a handgun.”
Gun store owner Brant Williams is taking a state leader’s suggestion. Last week after the tragic shootings in Oregon, Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey encouraged Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit.“Ron Ramsey had a good point,” said Williams. “Christians need to arm up.”
He’s offering 5% off any new handgun if you say you’re a Christian.
The initiative ignores the fact that the Oregon shooting wasn’t about Christianity. It furthers the the false “good guy with a gun” narrative and forgets that people are more likely to hurt themselves with a gun than defend themselves with one. It tastelessly looks to profit off of the tragic loss of nine lives.
But hey — that’s just the American way. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.
