The Second Amen-ment ...

... Gun Shop, that is. From North Carolina:
SMITHFIELD - Vickie Jordan and her husband, Eddie, were all set to open a gun store in Smithfield, but they were missing one thing: the name.

"I went to bed one night and was real apprehensive because we couldn't come up with a name," Vickie Jordan recalled.

When she finally got to sleep, she said, she dreamt that God told her to name it after the Second Amendment -- the Constitutional right to bear arms -- but to call it the Second Amen-ment Gun Shop.

"I said, 'All right, Lord, I get the picture," Vickie Jordan said.

The name fit well: Her husband is an evangelist and pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Selma. And when he's not preaching, he can be found at the shooting range with his son, Blake, who manages the new store.

"A lot of people make fun of me -- a Bible in one hand, a .44 in the other," Eddie Jordan said. "I sort of turned a hobby into a business."
