Guns for Christmas

It’s kind of funny to read stories like this by foreigners.

Since 1998, when the system began, December has been the busiest month in all but two years (2008 and 2013).

Giving someone a gun for Christmas may seem strange to non-Americans. But here, it’s the equivalent of…?

“Diamonds,” interjects Mark.

“I got customers who are husband and wife. She gets Louis Vuitton bags, he gets firearms.

“That’s their gift giving to each other.”
