Texas: Buy A Ring, Get A Gun

If you want a true shotgun wedding, this offer from Thacker Jewelry may entice you.


“We started this tradition I believe it was, it’ll be three years now,” Thacker Jewelry Owner Joe Thacker Said. “The idea, of course, is the word play and the old shotgun wedding. Not going back to the negative connotation playing off of that and it’s been a lot of fun. We had a lot of people participate and this year we’ve even gotten into it more.”

Of course, you don’t get your gun at the actual store, but at LSG Tactical.

“Any time any of their customers go over there and purchase something that meets their qualifications, they get a gift certificate for either a Remington 870 shotgun or a savage bolt action rifle,” LSG Tactical Steve Burns said.

Thacker and Burns said this sale is not too surprising for Texans.

“It’s something that’s very natural for most Texans,” Burns said. “Most guys grew up hunting or at least exposed to hunting if not by their family, but by their friends, or social groups. So it’s something that’s pretty natural for all of us.”

Chinese Making Homemade Firearms


Private gun ownership is banned in China, shotguns and rifles are only allowed for restricted and highly controlled hunting. But this doesn’t stop people from doing what they want.

Nevertheless, the Chinese have proven very adept at making homemade
firearms that can be quite lethal, and such guns have been identified in
more high profile crimes, notably in Xinjiang province. On Aug. 4, 2008, a
Uighur attack on police in Xinjiang involved the use of homemade firearms
by ill-equipped separatists. Homemade guns are not just confined to
Xinjiang; news reports in China note a proliferation of both homemade and
fake guns on the market, brought on by the economic crisis.

In addition to homemade guns, standard handguns have also become more
frequently used in random crime throughout the country, suggesting an
increase in gun trafficking and lax control at official gun factories.
Chinese organized crime, namely the Triads, have been known to deal in
weapons smuggling, but generally it is for internal distribution  not for sale to the public.
