Want 10 percent off your ammo at one Kentucky gun shop? Better wish Jesus a happy birthday [Opinion: The Arena]

The War on Christmas

Like many local merchants, the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point is running a sale this holiday season. But betting that only infuriated Christians buy guns (likely to stock up for The War on Christmas), per its radio ads, the discounts only apply to shoppers who mention the ad and

  • say "Merry Christmas"
  • sing Silent Night
  • name all of Santa's reindeer, backwards
  • say "Happy birthday, Jesus"

What I'll say: nasty stereotypes about Kentucky don't invent themselves; the good Christian folk at Knob Creek Gun Range help perpetuate them. Toda!
