A gun store in Kingston, Tennessee is offering a discount to any customer who mentions that they are a Christian when purchasing a handgun.

The store, Frontier Firearms, is offering a five percent discount to anyone customer who announces their Christian faith during a purchase. The gun store began the offer shortly after the Oregon shooting at Umpqua Community College took place. The owner, Brant Williams, is convinced that Christians are under attack.

“If Christians are going to be targeted, we need to protect ourselves,” said Williams.

“I don’t care if you’re a Democrat, or Republican, an Independent, the Green Party, I don’t care what party you’re with. But to say that that shooting right there had nothing to do with religion is ludicrous,” said Frontier Firearms VP Eric Parish. “What if someone had done the same thing and they only shot them if they were Muslim? Would the President react differently?”

Parish recently said that the sale is no longer exclusive to Christians, but Muslims can also take advantage of the deal. “Religion was a part of this country’s founding, you know religious freedom,” Parish added. It appears that the store just wants to pump more guns into the American public.
