    There is a movie called Wild Life, by Talking Heads main guy David Byrne, that starts out showing a deserted mall in Mesquite, Texas, (Big Town Mall) near where I grew up, with tumbleweeds blowing across the vast empty white hot concrete parking lot on a hot summer day with the narrator saying "and God made Texas, and then he realized nobody wanted to live there. So he had to make Texans"....I am from Texas, I love Texas, but if you have ever lived thru a bunch of Texas summers, you see where he is coming from....But, yes, we do have some extraordinarily goofy ass people living here amongst all the other really cool people...to wit:

    A Houston-area gun store and shooting range has come under fire for advertising a “back to school” firearms sale — less than two weeks after back-to-back mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

    “Back to school sale August 13 through 18,” the Boyert Shooting Center in Katy recently posted on its marquee sign. “Up to 50 percent off firearms.”

    Local resident Michelle Simons, who sent a photograph of the sign to KTRK-TV, said she was shocked by the store’s choice of words.

    It was so jarring like, ‘Did I really see that?’” Simons, whose husband is an educator, told the station. “What does back to school have anything to do with getting guns? I hope it was just some kind of glaring oversight.”

    The Boyert Shooting Center, which has also been advertising its “HUGE SUMMER SALE” on Facebook, told KTRK in a statement that the promotion was meant to celebrate and thank educators.

    “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,” the store said.

    But some customers have lambasted the ad as inappropriate.

    “It’s tasteless and tone deaf,” said one Twitter user, who said he’d visited the store in the past. “Yes, I have been to the store. Never again.”

    The Boyert Shooting Center is no stranger to controversy. Last year, the store made headlines after it took a jab at Dick’s Sporting Goods in one of its ads.

    “We’re not all Dicks. We still sell ARs,” the store wrote on its marquee sign after the retail company announced its decision to stop selling assault-style rifles in the wake of a shooting massacre in a Florida high school.

    I think the store is tuned in perfectly to responsible, law-abiding gun owners.

    To pants-pissing liberals, not so much. But what smart gun store owner would give a crap about those losers anyway?

    it is hard to believe even a trump voter could be so cold-blooded and insensitive they do not see how insane it is for a gun shop owner to advertise a BACK TO SCHOOL sale for guns, given how many kids have been shot to death by some loon while at school!!

    read these facts about school shootings, then tell me any gun shop who advertises a BACK TO SCHOOL sale for guns like you would a gun sale for the start of deer season, is not a complete idiot. might as well put at the end of his ad- Happy Hunting!!

    Thanks, but I'm perfectly happy with my knowledge of school shootings. And again, the owner isn't marketing to anti-gun pussies. He's marketing to responsible gun owners. Back to school is a great time to buy a gun.

    You are right.

    There are NEVER sales on beer or alcohol after a DUI Crash.

    Heck there are NEVER car sales after car accidents.

    Those damn roofers are providing of storms! Can't you tell when you're being mocked and laughed at?

    Pssst... There's NEVER a bad time to have a sale on guns. The fact that it gets liberal panties in a twist is icing on the cake.

    Now... Tell me when it's a bad time to exercise one's Constitutional rights.

    if you know you get easily triggered by anyone seeing how pig ignorant it is for a gun store to have a back to school sale, then do something about it. therapy, more meds, less. something.

    you are the one that somehow thought about jacking off to a gun store ad and you believe somebody else needs to take meds? do they allow sharp objects wherever it is you are posting from?

    My gawd two diatribe novels ( do you actually think readers read those drawn out novels) and you prove you know nothing about business or being a business owner.

    Americans are going to start fighting back instead of being prog sheep. There were 5 milled and 47 shot in Chicago from Friday until Sunday and progs don't post of that war!
