Yes- you read that right…
A car dealership is trying to drum up business by offering an unusual perk for potential used-truck buyers: a free AK-47 assault rifle. General sales manager Nick Ginetta says that since the promotion was announced in the Florida town on Veterans Day (November 11), business has more than doubled at Nations Trucks. Customers would have to pass a background check before using the $US400 ($A405) gun-shop voucher. They also have the option of using the money towards other firearms, or they can request a cheque for that amount instead. The dealership has fielded some complaints about the deal, which Ginetta acknowledges is controversial. But he adds: “My buyer is absolutely a gun owner, no question.” The promotion is scheduled to run until the end of November.
Only in America… in Florida (it had to be there or Texas). Because Americans can’t drink without smoking or drive a truck without being heavily armed.
