RadioShack dealer insists on gun giveaway


HAMILTON, Mont. — A Montana RadioShack owner said he will keep giving away guns with satellite television subscriptions, despite the corporation’s insistence that he halt the promotion.

Since October, independent dealer Steve Strand has been offering a gift card for a $125 pistol or $115 shotgun and a free background check to customers who sign up for two-year Dish Network packages.

Officials of RadioShack Corp. called Mr. Strand on Tuesday and ordered him to pull the promotion.

Mr. Strand refused, saying he is within his rights as a legal dealer. He is seeking legal representation, he said.
