US car dealer in free gun offer

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."

The dealership sells new and old vehicles, including General Motors and Ford cars and trucks, and its logo shows a cowboy holding a pistol.

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

Inspiration from Obama

Mr Muller said that every buyer so far "except one guy from Canada and one old guy" chose the gun, rather than the gas card.

He recommends a Kel-Tec .380 pistol, which he describes as "a nice little handgun that fits in your pocket".

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.

"He said all those people in the Midwest, you've got to have compassion for them because they're clinging to their guns and their Bibles. I found that quite offensive. We all go to church on Sunday and we all carry guns."

The website advertisement for the offer, which continues until the end of the month, mentions that an approved background check on gun ownership is required.

Good to see this as usually it is the other way around. People get a gun and then use it to get a free car.

Neat idea but what I would really like to see is someone give a new car with every hand gun purchase.

If I were in the market for a vehicle, this place would definitely have my business! Great idea, and really not too difficult to pull off. Maybe need to take this story to my local dealerships and see if they'd follow suit . . . :)

That is cool. Plus the fact that gas prices are so high and people are still choosing the gun is saying something.

FN1910, your comment " People get a gun and then use it to get a free car" got me laughing so hard. Thanks.

I live only about 50 miles from that dealership, believe me if I were in the new car market, I would do business with them. That ad must be raising eyebrows nationwide, Jay Leno even mentioned it in his monalogue last week.
