Florida gun shop draws ire with offer for Jacksonville Jaguars season ticket holders


Just when you thought things couldn’t get more interesting for the Jacksonville Jaguars — a franchise who has captured the attention of the entire nation with their decision to sit the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, quarterback Blake Bortles behind the incumbent in Chad Henne — they have.

Jax Tactical Guns, a Jacksonville Beach gun shop, has put a coupon offer in the ‘Teal Deals’ booklet that is mailed to season ticket holders each and every season. The coupon offers a $59 class that lasts two-and-a-half hours and is required for anyone looking for a conceal weapons permit, for just $25.

The store’s owner says it has been a very successful promotion that they’ve been doing for ‘several years’.

Now, that offer is drawing ire and mockery left and right, all while raising eyebrows and drawing nothing but criticism.

A North Carolina Radio Station, 105.9 FM The Mountain, made it their top item on the ‘Daily Dumbass Report’ that was published on Wednesday, August 27, 2014.

It didn’t end there. An article on Design & Trend claims that the Jaguars are ‘desperate’ and were ‘threatened with blackouts every week last season’ and should ‘tell Blake Bortles’ girlfriend to join the cheerleading squad’ if they want to seel tickets. Clearly, these people are so deeply misinformed.

“… To compund the lack of appeal, the organization has expressed little to no interest in starting promising rookie quarterback Blake Bortles, who is the only name of the team that people can get excited about.” – Design&Trend

Oh, so people aren’t excited about Paul Posluszny, Allen Hurns, Sen’Derrick Marks, Allen Robinson or Marqise Lee? Please.

“…Jags fans who are on the fence about buying season tickets have very little incentive to fall in favor of purchasing them. Maybe the Jaguars can convince the NFL to let Bortles have his girlfriend, the smoking hot Lindsey Duke, sit on the bench with him.” – Design&Trend

But oh, we have so many fans on the fence about buying tickets. Please, gimme a break.

On top of that, season ticket renewals are strong as well.

And top to it off, here’s the icing on the cake…

How’s that Design & Trend?!

Gosh, some people are just so misinformed. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a discount concealed weapons permit class to attend.
