About the Christians
Kingston, Tennessee’s Frontier Firearms store is offering a discount for Christian customers in the wake of the the mass shooting in Oregon.
“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.”
He’s offering 5% off any new handgun if you say you’re a Christian. No proof necessary.
The chairman of the local Democratic Party disagrees.
