Radio Shack franchise owner Steve Strand has been selling Dish Network subscriptions at his store with a promotion that is gaining international attention: sign up for Dish, get a free gun. Customers at Strand's store get a certificate when they sign up for the service that they can cash in at a local gun store after passing the required background check. Radio Shack headquarters has called in a complaint, but Strand tells Ginny Simone that he does not think he is violating their contract and is within his rights. One way or another, business is increasing and Strand is continuing the promotion. Originally aired 3/30/2011.
