Free Gun With Purchase
A car dealership in Missouri has found its sales quadrupled after the introduction of an offer that gives customers a free gun with the purchase of any used or new vehicle. The promotion, which is said to be a response to Barack Obama’s recent comment on Midwestern voters who “cling to guns or religion,” continues until the end of the month.
WAIT, BEFORE YOU GO…
A car dealership in the United States is offering a free handgun with every vehicle sold.
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.
Owner Mark Muller said: “We’re just damn glad to live in a free country where you can have a gun if you want to.”
