Now I have joked for years since I moved here, that Montana was a place where when you came there, you were scanned for a gun. If you didn't have
one, they issued you one. Apparently it's now true.
The Radio Shack in Hamilton Montana is now offering a free gun with the purchase of a new satellite and subscription to Dish Network. Your choice of a
.380 or a 20-gauge shotgun. If you choose not to get a gun, you still get a $50 gift certificate to Pizza Hut!!
According to the store manager, business has picked up since he started the promotion. Hamilton is in way Western Montana near Idaho. I doubt this
promotion would work in the eastern part of the state since most people on this side already have more guns per capita than Texas Republicans.
If anyone still thinks I'm joking, this image is courtesy of the Billings Gazette:
And yes, Dish Network did go along with the promotion, and they are about to start a similar promotion next month with Direct TV.
