Buy a Truck, Get a Free AK-47!

Remember the dealership that gave away handguns if you buy their car last year? Well, they've upped their firepower: Max Motors in Butler, Missouri, is now giving away an AK-47 (technically, a voucher redeemable for one) when you buy a pick-up truck!

Mark Muller, owner of Max Motors, is upgrading an earlier sales gimmick in which he offered new truck buyers to choose between a $250 gas voucher or a gun voucher. The website says the dealer is giving away guns again "due to popular demand."

"Muller calls the initial deal an overwhelming success," Business Insider reports. "He also says it generates a lot of publicity and really angers 'liberals.'"

I'm a liberal. I voted for Obama (but supported Kucinich in the primaries), am pro-choice, pro-market regulation, pro-universal healthcare, pro heavy cuts in "defense" spending, anti-capital punishment, etc. This stunt doesn't make me angry in the least.

Also, hearsetrax, I own a couple guns (a .22 rifle and a 12 gauge shotgun, and a BB gun) but I'd like to imagine I'm not a nutjob.

Unclear as to why anyone would consider this crazy. I'm pro-gun control myself but if anyone is surprised at the lengths to which merchants will go, I mean... c'mon.

They sell things, it's what they do. And car merchants are proven to be predominantly republican, loud, attention-needing people.

Republican due to statistics and occupation (taxes and whatnot). Attention - have you SEEN the commercials? Loud - not necessarily but we're talking the giant inflatable gorilla on top of the dealership: pretty loud.

Fanning the flames of controversy is a great way to get publicity. I've had fun firing AK-47's in the past but can't imagine what use one would have in my day to day life. Viva la revolution? Hunting?

oh noes, an AK-47!!!!!1

Won't somebody think of the children!

I grew up hunting, around guns, knives, bows and was a Marine Corps OCS DI brat to boot, yet I never went crazy and didnt go postal when I got laid off almost a month ago.

A gun is a tool, a screwdriver is a tool, both can be deadly in the hands of an idiot. One just has a longer range and moving parts.

Would it change anyone's opinion if it was a 12g or a .22 or a revolver?

I have less of a problem with him distributing guns to idiots, then I do have of him selling trucks to idiots. More problems can happen on the road.

Well- depending on what part of the world you go- cars still make more casualties than AK-47's.

So perhaps it is the trucks that he tries to sell that we should be outraged and shocked about....
