Some Incentive To Buy

U.S. Auto Dealership Offers Gun With Purchase
BUTLER, Missouri (AP) - Salesmen at a Missouri car dealership are not just kicking in a free CD player or air conditioner: They are offering a free handgun with every purchase.Through the end of the month, car buyers at Max Motors in Butler will have a choice - $250 (159) toward either a gun purchase or gasoline.General manager Walter Moore said that so far, most buyers have chosen the gun, adding that he suggests they opt for a semiautomatic model "because it holds more rounds."(In the fine print, the ad on the Web site explains, "Check written toward purchase price" and also mentions, "Approved Background Check REQUIRED!!")Moore said he suspects his "Free Handgun" ad will draw protests in some places. But not in Butler, about 65 miles (105 kilometers) south of Kansas City.

It's just long-term planning. 250 bucks is 250 bucks. But in these times of excessive gas prices, with all the convenience stores you can rob with just one handgun, well, think of all the car payments you can make with that.

NYCed has a good point. Never thought of that. You can actually rob the gas stations.

These stories are just amazing.

I wonder what this approved background check entails. This is idiotic.

I wonder how many people are killed by cars versus handguns? That would be something interesting to find out.
