Dealership offers free gas or gun with new car: 80% choose gun

I'LL TAKE THE GUN


Dealership offers free gas or gun with new car: 80% choose gun - Autoblog
Dealership offers free gas or gun with new car: 80% choose gun

In a move certain to generate both controversy and publicity, a new and used car dealer in Butler, Missouri, is offering his customers a choice between two sales incentives with their vehicle purchase: $250 in gasoline or a free semi-automatic handgun.

"We got high gas prices, theft, carjackings, innocent people getting hurt," Walter Moore, from Max Motors, told KMBC-TV. It seems the resourceful dealer is offering car buyers a solution for it all -- and the gun is proving to be the popular choice with 80 percent of his customers choosing the firearm over free fuel. As expected, not everyone is happy. Considering most of his customers already own guns, Moore doesn't understand why people's feathers are getting all ruffled. Customers who choose the semi-auto pistol over the gas are handed a certificate that must be redeemed, after the requisite forms and background check are complete, at a local gun shop. This, of course, keeps the local police much happier. Thanks for the tip, mccreery!

Shows common sense people. With a gun you can rob a bank to get money to pay for the gas and make your car payment. The bank is federally insured, the gas station keeps its customers, lender gets its monthly payment, lendee stays in good credit standing because payment is made on time, if not paid off early, what a win / win situation. Economy rolls a long. I like it!

Well, I wouldn't have worded it quite like that Seems to me a lot
of folks feel like REALLY bad times are coming, and a weapon is a longer
term solution (or aid) than $250 worth of gas. I'm glad to see them
choosing the more practical of the two incentives. Shows that them
Missourian's (and I was born in Kansas City) have some good 'ol horse
sense about them.

Seriously, though, I am very concerned about what's coming.
