A car dealership in the US is giving customers a free gun with every purchase of a new car – a move that has seen sales quadruple since the offer began. For those who have no need for firearms, a $250 petrol card alternative is offered alongside the gun – to date most customers have plumped for the latter.
Max Motors owner Mark Muller told the BBC “we’re just damn glad to live in a free country where you can have a gun if you want to.”
Amusingly – the logo of Max Motors, whose car dealership is in the US Midwest in Butler, Missouri – features an angry looking gun-toting cowboy. The outlet sells, amongst others, cars from Ford and Chrysler.
The offer is running until the end of the month – but highlights the requirement for an approved background check on gun ownership.
The dealership, whose slogan is God, Guns and Gas, say they are aware of the gasoline and crime problem in America, and want to be part of the solution and not the problem.
