    "A car dealership in the United States is offering a free handgun with every vehicle sold."

    Story: BBC NEWS | Americas | US car dealer in free gun offer

    Excerpts:
    Max Motors in Butler, Missouri, says sales have quadrupled since the start of the offer.

    Customers can choose between a gun or a $250 (£125) gas card, but most so far have chosen the gun.

    It [the dealership] has sold more than 30 cars and trucks in the past three days, an increase which the owners put down to their promotional offer.

    He added that the promotion was inspired by recent comments from one of the Democratic nominees for the presidential election, saying: "We did it because of Barack Obama."
    It appears their sales have increased and they're getting a good bit a media buzz ... clever!

    In the USA we have approximately 90 guns for every 100 residents! The estimated total is over 215 m-i-l-l-i-o-n so it’s not uncommon auto dealers and others have promotions featuring guns since we like them so much! :cool: :AR15firing:

    Michael Moore = if there were a disgusting-piece-of-filth the world would be better without list, he would belong right near the top.

    We have an average of 4,300,000 guns per state, will that work for including your state? :smile:

    There's GOT to be a joke about a bunch of armed new-car owners bombarding oil companies to get them to lower gas prices! :biggrin1:

    For the lowest gas prices they should have robbed the petrol station after filling up their tanks.:tongue:
