Mass mail occasionally arrives for prior occupants. Their names are familiar by now. Except this one.
What's being marketed? Guns.
That means that this open market website dove deep into their database to push guns to anyone who might be interested.
Because maybe soon, as a result of the Newtown, Connecticut School Massacre, there will be stricter guns laws. Maybe they're actually worried that it might happen.
The back says Guns International dot com. "Direct contact between gun buyers and gun sellers. Browse over 40,000 guns listed for sale. The easiest, most effective website to buy and sell your guns and gun related items. Register for 3 FREE listings."
So. The outside of the envelop advertises a classifies web site for the gun market. Turns out that's just the draw. More broadly the mailing is for people expecting to live off the grid. Inside the envelope are coupons for a propane refrigerator, easy-assembly out buildings and room additions or making your own log cabins and log furniture. Coin and classic stamp sets. A book on understanding biblical prophecy. Metal detectors. A $10 off coupon to join the NRA which totals here to only $25. It's all here.
Notably, there are also coupons for Rx delivery and mobility scooters.
Sometimes cultural artifacts just arrive at your door. This is part of our America. It really is.
