Texas Gun Shop Holds ‘Back to School’ Gun Sale
Russ Chastain 08.21.19
The good news: A gun shop in Katy, Texas held a “back to school” sale for guns, with “up to 50% off!”
The bad news? We missed it.
It was reported by ABC13 that Boyert Shooting Center faced “backlash” after they posted the sign advertising back-to-school specials on guns.
One woman quoted in the article said the sign was “jarring,” and her husband is a teacher who “feels for” his students “when his school district makes him teach his students about active shooter safety.”
The gun shop has a great reason for running the sale, though. They offer discounted training and merchandise during the summer months when educators have more time to exercise their rights. Here’s a statement from them:
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.
My only regret is that I missed the sale.
