A Free Gun With Every Truck
The Associated Press has a story this morning that should disturb everyone.
Butler, Missouri car company Max Motors has taken incentives for buying an automobile to the next level. In the month of August, if you buy a truck you will receive a voucher so that you can purchase an AK-47.
Yes, that is right. Buy a truck, get a free assault rifle! I have one word for this promotion: dumb. I could add another one, too: dangerous. Mark Muller, the owner, is just asking for trouble if you ask me. Have we really sunk to that level in our society?
The AK-47 is responsible for nearly a quarter of a million deaths each year, according to the Washington Post. Umm... Mr. Muller? Hello? Did it ever occur to you that this might be a bad idea?
