Found this video clip to be kind of humorous as well.
Enjoy.

Great video, very poignant. He was articulate, restrained, and didn't call the reporter(commentator) an idiot as he was right to do so. Too bad I'm in Florida, and don't need a new truck for awhile.

The anchor babe should be advised that in the Bible, Jesus does advise any of his followers who have no weapon, to sell a blanket and buy one. Of course, it wouldn't be an AK back then, but a sword would be the accepted norm.
The salesman also appeared a bit clueless on this point.
I'm not trying to be snarky here ....
but from what I recall of my religious training (back in the Middle Ages ;-) ) the phrase "turning the other cheek" refered to insults, not physical attacks. There is nothing unChristian about using force to defend oneself against a violent attack. In fact, it was expected that one respect his own life and to defend it.

As I watched that I was really hoping he would say exactly what Tommygunn ^^ said. I was getting ready to write it out then I saw that it had already been done (and done well at that).

I wish the car dealer had explained what a semi-auto AK47 is, and what the ballistics of the 7.62x39 round are, to counter her statement that she grew up in a "rural" home in which there were guns but "no AK47s." A .30-30, perhaps, etc.?? The 7.62x39 round is very nearly the same in power and diameter (.308) as that .30-30 her pappy kept (??) in the closet for deer hunting.

The misnamed "assault" rifles have been so demonized by the extreme left controlled zombie media that everyone uninformed, including that anchor babe, thinks the 7.62x39 and .223 rounds are just a bit less powerful than an atomic head missle.

Oh well, maybe next time.

If I find myself in need of a new truck I might need to wander to Butler.

I wish he would have pointed out that the AK47 is only Semi Auto and not any more evil than a Remchester hunting rifle except that it holds a couple more rounds and is less accurate but a heck of alot better for defense.

I love the way She pulled out the old "Cops carry guns and get killed all the time." Gee I guess we should take guns away from LEO's cuz they'll get killed anyways ***??? Having a firearm gives you an advantage and at worst helps level the playing field a little. Will having a gun always save your life--NO, but it at least gives you a chance.

While I was typing away Leanwolf beat me to the punch.

Isn't it amazing how easy it is when you have the truth on your side.

Another fine example of how clueless the sheeple are in this country. They have been conditioned to recognize the AK 47 as something used only by radical militia groups. It's only a freakin rifle.

I'm not in the market for a new truck but if he was close to me & I needed one I believe I'd go talk to him first.

+1 Tommygunn and lions. Here's the passage:

Luke 22:35
35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take [it], and likewise [his] scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.
38 And they said, Lord, behold, here [are] two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.
39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.
...

Luke 22:47
47 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.
48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.
51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
52 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

Pretty clear that Christ's disciples went armed and were willing to use their arms for defense.

All the guy wants to do is sell cars honestly. Many people look for home protection so he offers a voucher to buy a gun as an incentive to purchase a car from his dealer. "AK-47" has the nice masculine ring of "Mack Truck". The words he used were in his slogan were a play off of the old, "God, Glory, Gold". Honestly, who's getting upset over God being lumped in with guns? I've heard God lumped in with plenty more offensive words than "Guns"... Then she starts asking the guy if he thinks Jesus would carry a gun. Lady, the guy's a car dealer in rural Missouri, not a member of a Vatican research team. Lay off!

They would never consider this "news", even on a slow day, except for the fact that they want to "report" on it in order to push their agenda. Her entire approach was simply to attack - she was asking questions as an inquisitor, as opposed to an inquirer. How can anyone, even those most stridently in agreement with the newswoman's patent stance on gun ownership generally, not see how utterly biased this is?

Going out of your way to pick a fight with someone is not reporting.

They always use that tactic she resorted to towards the end, as well - "some people" might be uncomfortable with your using guns and God in the same sentence, etc. They always pull the "some people" line, or "many", etc.

No one calls them out on it. The interviewee's response to that should always be to call them out on their straw-man speculation.

When she says "some people may not like X", he needs to say "Whom? Produce these people! Or, are you really talking about yourself and your network? Who else have you spoken with, and why did they say they were made uncomfortable (heaven forbid) by a simple sales promotion?"

That'd shut her right up.

Unfortunately this is what passes as a "news"anchor these days. They have lost their way and it's sad and embarrassing. They seem to all be pushing their own agendas theses days. Nothing more than a commentator. They are a tool of the left.

I shared this with my sons. One is sending it to his liberal teacher. The teacher is open to debate in class. This will help educate the other students. This is a good post.

It's kind of hard to balance on all fours when somebody like this reporter is throwing awkward, illogical questions at you. This guy received the questions, and he was able, on the spot, to put square pegs into a round hole. Yes, he could have said some things better, but hindsight is also 20/20. NBA players can also hit the last shot 20 times in a row during practice. Being on the clock is something totally different. This guy did a great job considering the circumstances.

The dude missed a great chance to tell people that the AK clone is not an AK-47.

Anyway, he did a good job! Good looking out!

EDIT:

How can you fault someone for the type of weapon they use to defend themselves? Isn't that just like anything else? I prefer Kroger brand because it is cheaper or name brand because it taste better or this brand because I get a rebate or have a coupon... Why not use the best you can get your hands on? I mean, our troops and police don't use bolt actions and revolvers, they use the best they can get because this is serious business.
