Default Buy Cheap, Bury Deep: Store Owner Under Fire For Controversial Gun Ad



Buy Cheap, Bury Deep: Store Owner Under Fire For Controversial Gun Ad
Posted By: Thomas Wilson 18 hrs ago

By Ryan Kosgard, KPRC/NBC News Channel

HOUSTON, TX -- A new, controversial gun store ad has some wondering about the real meaning behind, "Buy them cheap. Bury them deep." The radio ad, airing in the Houston, Texas area also says, "This is Jim Pruett calling from federal prison. Well, not yet."

The ad is for Jim Pruett's Guns and Ammo in northwest Harris County, Texas. It then carries a political message, "Come this November, many could be incarcerated if a bunch of naive voters elect misguided, anti-gun politicians to office."

One line stands out. It says, "Jim Pruett's guns and ammo, where we say 'Buy them cheap. Bury them deep.'" Some are asking, "Bury who deep?"

Owner Jim Pruett said, "We certainly don't mean -- buy your guns, shoot the criminals and bury them deep. Not in your back yard. No, that's not the intent of that. But it's a fun thing to think about."

Pruett said he meant customers should buy guns now and stash them away in case Texans cannot buy them later because politicians prohibit the sale. It's not the first time the former radio personality and Vietnam veteran has captured attention.

One of his radio ads urged people to arm themselves against Hurricane Katrina evacuees. He called them "Katricians."

Pruett said, "I try to use my radio time to say something important."

Andy Kahan, the crime victim's advocate for Houston's mayor, said of the gun ad, "It's just sad that we have to live in a society where you think that you have to have a firearm just to keep you and your family safe."

Pruett said his gun training classes remain at full capacity. He said they have successfully trained more than 5,000 people over the past seven years.

It sounds like a great catchy catch phrase to me

I, for one, like the guys ideals and his willingness to put it out there for those who want to "hear the message". Good for him!

'Buy them cheap. Bury them deep.'

The first thing that came to mind was weapons and ammo caches, not burying the crooked politicians. But the other thought may have merit....

Don't forget the fine individuals running the court and prison systems.

I still would like to get my hands on a Jolly Green, load it with sharp hand held weapons, hover over an exercise yard and unload the payload - then put the ensuing chaos and bedlam on Pay Per View. Anyone left standing could earn a new trial with the proceeds. Now that would be worth $49.95in my opinion - not to mention doing some real good for the overcrowding problem....

Apparently this businessman is taking a lot of heat. That's a bunch of bull. Free speech is still allowed in this Country. At least for a little while longer.

HAHAHA! That was my first thought as well. It's funny how uninformed people try to make something out of nothing or try to distort the truth in an attempt to further their political agendas. I am hoping in this case, all the free publicity will really help this business man and boost his sales even more!
