This has got to beat all. An adult store in Huntsville, Alabama is offering a special gun trade in program in honor of the upcoming Valentine's Day next week.
For 8 days starting today, customers can bring guns into their stores, and they say that they will then give the customer a store credit equivalent to the market value of the gun, for the shopper to then use for buying any of their romance products.
Their hokey ad is just plain silly, showing a guy kissing a Glock, next to a gorgeous woman puckering up for a kiss.
Tell me, which would you rather kiss: your Glock, or a pretty woman? Or would you rather have both?
I wonder if folks that take advantage of this offer will actually get anything like the real value of their guns? I guess that in today's tough economy, more stores might try doing this, as a way to attract more business? They must figure that getting guns in trade is almost as good as receiving cash.
Here is what their silly ad looks like:
This story is actually making national news, and was featured on both CNN and MSNBC today.
Which one would I rather kiss? The glock ( as long as it isn't the one the guy in the picture is kissing). For the simple fact the lady in the picture isn't my particular cup of tea.
Question is, what will they do with the guns taken in trade??

I know not what this "overkill" means.
Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.
Hmmmm. I sleep with my gun EVERY night. I sleep with my spouse maybe twice a week.
........well that's a no-brainer!
it's a much better bed-partner anyway. Doesn't snore or fart or hog the covers.

Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
I see an underlying program from the anti's to "get guns off the streets."
There have been other programs as such. Some offer tickets to sporting events or cash. Anyhow you look at this, just another attempt to encourage people to disarm themselves.

HUNTSVILLE, AL —
Huntsville's adult toy store definitely knows how to stay in the news. This time, Pleasures owner Sherri Williams says her store is working to get 300 guns off the streets, trading them for adult toys.
The "Guns for Toys" event is scheduled for February 8-15 at the Pleasures drive-thru store on University Drive. David Smith, owner and licensed gun dealer of Blue Steel Gun Works, will be at the store daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to assess the value and condition of the guns.

"It’s my contribution to making love, not war here in Alabama, where guns are legal and adult toys are not,” said Williams.
“We’re loading our silver bullets to take aim at the hearts of gun enthusiasts who may rather kiss a woman than their gun on this Valentine's Day,” Williams added.
Williams says all guns that were used in a crime will be handed over to authorities, while all others will be auctioned off at MyPleasureStore.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the victims of violent crimes through the Alabama Crime Victims Compensation Commission.
Well, I am still physically able to use my gun!

The owner says she is doing this to get guns off the street, but then at the end it says all guns not used in crimes will be auctioned off. I have no problem with them auctioning them off, but her logic does not add up unless she has a lot of customers who are criminals.
If I came home with a sex toy as a suprise for my wife I'd better have traded off all the guns in the house, LOL
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Wouldn't want to get the two confused might end in a bad day!
