Groupon Is Now Anti Gun


grouponGroupon is following the anti-gun trend cancelling all gun related deals on its site. One Texas gun store owner’s Groupon deal for a handgun training course got the boot, and now the outraged owner is calling a boycott of Groupon.

    Apparently they could have used a few of those coupons at that Houston college where two people were caught in the Crossfire.

      @Toin Coss If only people were allowed to own and carry guns in Texas this could have been avoided…

    There are few things more embarrassing than going out to eat with a group of people and they use a Groupon when the check comes. It’s one step above using an EBT card.

    I would have thought pro gun people would be all about free enterprise and companies running their business however they wanted.

    Keep it up anti-gun idiots, just remember when seconds count, the Police are minutes away. (if you’re lucky)

      @Ziggy Stardust When did common sense turn into “anti-gun”.  Nobody is trying to take your guns. Nobody is trying to ban guns outright. Irrational fears like that are the reason this debate goes nowhere. It’s not all or nothing.  It’s amazing to me how many people have chosen to live a life riddled with false fears.

        @DonnieIris @Ziggy Stardust they’re technically only “irrational” if you disreguard the actions of empires such as the US throughout history. Did you know that 90% of school shootings over the last 20 years were committed by people taking SSRI’s and benzodiazepines?

        @HummusMagnate   @DonnieIris  @Ziggy  There’s nothing irrational about wanting to defend yourself against the “criminal element”. 
        Making it harder for law abiding citizens to defend themselves is surely NOT the answer.
        Yes, Hummus, I believe there is a connection between SSRI’s and mass shootings.
        It’s part of the suicidal tendencies that you’re warned about in the literature.

        @HummusMagnate   @DonnieIris  @Ziggy
         What is your point?  That guns are necessary to defend oneself against the “empire” that is America?  I for one don’t think that a shadow government is coming to kill me in my house.  If I’m wrong, I’ll feel like an idiot.  Until it does, I’ll leave that to you.  I absolutely agree that anti-depressants and other mood altering pharmacology needs to be examined and regulated.  When did that become mutually exclusive?

    Groupon no longer “arming” you with savings.
