KINGSTON, Tenn. (WVLT) — In the market for a gun? An East Tennessee store is offering a deal, as long as you’re a Christian. The owner of Frontier Firearms says the mass shooting in Oregon prompted the sale.
“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.”
Gun store owner Brant Williams is taking a state leader’s suggestion. Last week after the tragic shootings in Oregon, Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey encouraged Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit.
“Ron Ramsey had a good point,” said Williams. “Christians need to arm up.”
He’s offering 5% off any new handgun if you say you’re a Christian.
“I don’t think it’s a matter or proving or disapproving,” said Williams. “It’s a matter of saying the words ‘I’m a Christian’ and you get the discount.”
