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.”
Just when think there might be hope for Texas you quickly come to realize that there is no hope for Texas.
