New Car with Cup Holders and Handgun!

Here’s one you don’t see every day. Most car dealerships will offer custom options packages, maintenance contracts, extended warranties, low-APR financing, and even free gas – but here’s a new twist – a free handgun!?!? Sedan and semi-auto anyone? Hatchback with a Hi-point?

According to this story on Fox Max Motors in Butler, Mo is offering a free handgun with every purchase. The actual fine print indicates that $250 will be applied to either a handgun or gasoline, but according to general manager Walter Moore:

"Most buyers have chosen the gun, adding that he suggests they opt for a semiautomatic model 'because it holds more rounds.'"

I wonder if they do internet sales. The fine print also includes that a background check is required and the dealership provides a check written toward purchase – so that no straw purchases are occurring.

It’s nice to see a dealership that’s not afraid to support the Second Amendment for a change. I wish more businesses were similarly supportive of our basic Civil Rights, but I see this as a firm step in the right direction.

Until next time!!!
