    Scary hypocrisy there.

    Commandment no 6: Thou shalt not kill (unless they've got oil that you need, in which case it's okay ;))

    I'd just read this on the Beeb. The offer itself isn't what scares me it's the fact it's boosting sales so much :eek:

    You wouldn't dare threaten or give people road rage in that area would you? Everyone could be carrying a gun! You beep at an old dear in a Nissan Micra and she threatens you with a gun! :p

    How will other car dealers respond to this?

    Possibly with free RPG rocket launchers .. :confused:

    Should say more about the people in Butler, Missouri than anything else.

    Only 1 guy chose the $250 gas card.

    Everyone else in the US seems to be taking the free gas.

    Simple solution. Use your newly acquired handgun to get a free petrol card.

    This makes me proud to be a Missourian :rolleyes:


    Amazingly enough though, I know someone from Butler who isn't an inbred hick, and is actually quite smart and college educated. I think he's probably an exception, not a rule though.

    Anyone see bowling for columbine (Michael Moore), where they gave him a free gun for opening a bank account.

    Baseless?! This car dealer is giving away free handguns with a car/truck purchase! If that ain't something that would only happen in america, I don't know what is. I think it's hilarious, in a frightening sort of way.

    I've lived in this state for 22 years.....if you're calling a Missourian an inbred redneck, chances are, you're probably right ;)

    There's no need for that. The generalisations have been confirmed by the owner of the dealership!
    see!

    Not going to happen. Civillians in the US are not legally allowed to posses those. Instead, maybe shotguns would make a good competing offer.

    I'm pretty sure your sarcasm detector needs calibration.

    Scared? Frightened? Personally, I'm not going to lie awake at night, fearing that at any moment my town might be invaded by a convoy of new 4WD pickup trucks loaded with Bible-carrying redneck families armed to the teeth with shiny new handguns. :eek:

    Would it be any different if they were giving away knives?

    Those are not comparable in the slightest.

    Sorry. Kitchen knifes just aren't Redneck chic... not even the ones with the Confederate flag artistically painted on the handles. You can find a nice set of those at any Walmart these days for ~$19.95.

    You'd need to sweeten the deal... like say, offering kitchen knifes and all the booze you and your family can drink while your credit check is being run.
