Two obviously very intelligent individuals from Arkansas, USA took turns shooting one another while wearing a bulletproof vest, according to police who arrested them for felony assault.

This is a beautiful story that needs to be told in full. Ferris, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, told Hicks to shoot him. Hicks obliged, firing a single round from a .22 caliber rifle into Ferris’s chest. While the vest stopped the bullet, Ferris was left with a painful welt on his chest. Ferris said that he was “pissed” about being shot, and after Hicks put on the vest he proceeded to “unload the clip” into Hicks’s back. None of the five rounds penetrated the protective vest, but Hicks “was bruised from them hitting him.”

When Ferris subsequently sought medical treatment for the shooting injury, hospital workers called the police. Instead of admitting that he and Hicks had shot each other, Ferris told a crazy story about coming under fire by a mystery assailant while he was protecting an individual he referred to as an “asset.” Ferris claimed that he was paid $200 to protect the “asset,” whom he had met in a bar in the city of Springdale. Despite his story being very convincing, it did not help him get out of trouble. His wife later told police what actually happened and Ferris confessed to fabricating the secret agent/special ops story, claiming that he did not want to get Hicks in trouble. Both men ended up in jail.

What good is a new roof if you can`t shoot from it? James Webb, owner of a roofing company in Colorado, has also been asking himself this question for years and has decided to offer a free AR-15 rifle with every new roof.

A year ago, Webb changed the name of his company from Weather Proof Roofing to “Get a Roof Get a” “The whole idea came about because there’s so many roofing companies in Colorado, there’s no way to stand apart,’ he said. To generate business, Webb offered customers a free AR-15 with every completed roof.

“It’s a polarizing gun. If you’re a red-blooded American, you’ve served our country or served with the police, you get it. If you’re a liberal on the other side and need a safe space, you also get it,” said Webb.

The response to the promotion has been overwhelming and Webb had to increase his staff from 6 to more than 100.

I guess all you need to do in the US is to offer some sort of firearm with your product and success is guaranteed. A Beretta with every Happy Meal, a flame thrower with hair extensions and a shotgun with your expensive mortgage so that you can use it appropriately when they come to take you house away.
