In an effort to spread peace, Pleasures store owner Sherri Williams is announcing her second annual ‘Guns for Toys’ event this Saturday, February 11th from 10a.m. to 6p.m. Williams, who has often come under scrutiny for her business, knows her event will help keep the Huntsville community safer and happier.

“This is my contribution to making love, not war, here in Alabama, where guns are legal and adult toys are not,” Williams said of her Pleasures store’s 2nd Annual ‘Guns for Toys’ event.

A lifetime proponent of gun rights, Sherri Williams’ quoted battle cry, ‘I’ll give you my vibrators when you pry them from my cold, dead hand,’ was the focus of the highly publicized “20/20” segment with John Stossel. The show featured Williams’ and the ACLU’s battle to overturn the ban on adult toys.

On Saturday, February 11th from 10a.m. to 6p.m., Pleasures will be giving away romance inspiring gifts equal to the value of the guns offered in trade. A licensed gun dealer will be on site from to assess the value and condition of the guns presented.

“We’re loading our silver bullets to take aim at the hearts of gun enthusiasts who wish to kiss a woman rather than their gun this Valentine’s Day,” Pleasures store owner says. “Last year was successful and this year our goal will be to take another 100 guns off the streets”.

The Pleasures one-stop romance shop was the country’s first adult boutiques to offer a storewide selection of romance inspiring gifts in trade for guns in any condition. Pleasures celebrates this tradition for a second year. In a flaccid economy with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, this program is liberation for many struggling couples. All guns that were used in a crime will be handed over to the authorities while others will be disassembled and sold to a parts dealer. The proceeds of ‘Guns for Toys’ will benefit the victims of violent crimes through the Huntsville Fallen Officers Memorial Charity.
