Texas Gun Store Back To School Sale

Texas gun store gets heat over 'back to school sale' sign — but isn't backing down

In the wake of recent mass killings — particularly in El Paso — a Texas gun store is facing backlash over an outdoor sign advertising a "back to school sale," KTRK-TV reported.

The sign for Boyert Shooting Center in Katy indicates that the sale begins Tuesday and will include "up to 50 percent off firearms."

'Did I really see that?'
But that doesn't sit well with Michelle Simons, the station said.

"It was so jarring like, 'Did I really see that?'" she recalled to KTRK.

Simons told the station she and her husband passed the gun store while driving and were surprised by the sign. She added to KTRK that her husband is an educator and doesn't believe guns and schools should be mixed.

"In the current climate and in the current culture where we have school shootings just constantly, mass shootings just constantly, it seems like a real poor choice of words," Simons noted to the station.

She also told KTRK her husband gets upset when his school district makes him teach students about active shooter safety, and that he said students shouldn't have to worry about going through that.

The couple wondered to the station if the sign is a way to get attention by inciting controversy.

"I hope it was just some kind of glaring oversight. I would rather see any other kind of wording on their board," Simons told KTRK. "What does back to school have anything to do with getting guns?"

Gun store responds
Boyert Shooting Center sent the following statement to the station:

We have friends and family who are teachers and our way of reaching out and saying thank you is by offering a summer long promotion of discounted training courses, firearms and accessories. A lot of Texans are not aware, but it is now legal to conceal carry in some colleges, and for teachers in certain school districts to conceal carry as well. We are wrapping up the program that we have been running since the beginning of June, with a huge sale to benefit everyone.





This is a slam at Dick's for refusing to sell guns any longer. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The Simmons couple is your typical "head in the sand liberals".

The sign about Dick's is hilarious. The Back to School Sale sign might rank as being a little to early after the shooting in a local mall. Normally it is customary to let a little time pass before breaking out the humor. Except for Ted Kennedy dying. That was too irresistible to wait even 10 seconds.

They should have a massive weekend sale along with a commercial to go with it.

"Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! (and Saturday too). We got the big guns! (and the little ones) Guns for the whole family! Bring the kids!"
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.
