God this ismadness…
His name is Jim Pruett and he formed half of one of the most outrageous duos in Houston radio history — Stevens and Pruett — back in the 1990’s. He’s raising controversy on the airwaves again — this time as a gun shop owner. He says Houstonians must arm themselves, because of the rise in crime. But, as you would imagine, some Katrina evacuees say they are being publicly called out.
Gun shop owner Jim Pruett says Houston’s growing crime problem has brought a boom in business. It’s a trend Pruett ties in part to the arrival of Katrina evacuees.This is his latest radio advertisement:
“When the Katricans themselves as saying the crime rate will go up if they don’t have more free rent, then it’s time to get your concealed weapons license.”
Some Katrina evacuees say they are feeling the need to arm themselves for protection. (emphasis mine)
Jim Pruett is to disaster relief what Archie Bunker was to plane hijackings…ARCHIE: “Well, I could stop hi-jacking tomorrow . . . if everyone was allowed to carry guns them hi-jackers wouldn’t have no superiority. All you gotta do is arm all the passangers, then no hi-jacker would risk pullin’ a rod.”
