    Car dealer offers customers free AR-15 assault rifle with car purchase

    http://www.wgal.com/news/car-dealer-...chase/40105434

    SNIP

    ROCHESTER, NH. A New Hampshire car dealer is offering each buyer a free AR-15 assault rifle, a type of weapon similar to the one used in the Orlando, Florida, gay nightclub massacre.

    Mike Hagan owns Hagan's Motor Pool Auto Repair and Sales in Rochester. He said he's given away four AR-15s and one 9mm handgun, an option for buyers who don't want the rifle.

    Hagan told NH1-TV he has partnered with a nearby gun store, which runs the required background checks.

    There is absolutely no difference in this than if he (the dealer) were to give a cash rebate/discount to the purchaser to use for whatever he/she sees fit.

    It is an interesting advertising gimmick which does promote the RKBA......of which we doth approve.

    Rest assured, however, that the dealer is pricing this into the deal. There is no free lunch - neither from politicians nor automobile dealers.

    Repeating - I like what the dealer is doing.

    There is (was) a Ford dealer in Houston TX that every fall (just before deer season) gives a 30-30 rifle with the purchase of a Ford truck. At one time he was the biggest dealer of Winchester 30-30s in the country (he had a FFL).

    I seem to remember another car dealer somewhere doing this same thing after another of the mass shootings in the last 2-3 years. Anyone else recall that?

    There was a bank that advertised to gun owners that instead of collecting interest on a COD (Certificate of Deposit) account, they would receive a Weatherby rifle when they opened the account, and all of their money back at the end of the term of the certificate. Always wanted to do that, but I was a poor teenager at the time.

    The jokes are funny (well some of them) but we have a case of seriously off topic thread drift here.

    The jokes are being moved to the Social Lounge.

    Please stay on track with the OP. There is no wish to apply sanctions or thread lock.

    There's a high correlation between not passing a background check and not passing the credit check for the car loan.
