    Some days I hate this state and days where I'm tickled pink.
    I think starting it on veteran's day may have been a bit iffy but boy does it draw some attention.
    Speaking of which, I could probably use a truck... :p

    From what I've read and heard on the news this morning it's only good when the customer buys a used truck. The profit margin on a new truck is often too small to cover the cost of the AK after the saleman's commission and the lot fees.
    Used vehicles often have 200% markup or better if the dealer is on his toes.

    The local TV station up here went crazy over the idea. One of the news anchors thought it was insane giving away a gun with a truck purchase. The other anchor looked him in the eye and said "Well, we know where you stand on the 2nd amendment and gun rights" I just about fell out of my chair laughing so hard. It was priceless.

    We've been thrashing this topic on the Florida Forums.

    It's an interesting sales tactic, but you have to be a valid gun purchaser or you only get cash value.

    The impression that they will give an unacceptable person or Felon a firearm because it's attached to the sale of a truck is pure hokey. You still have to have a background check and be cleared for a weapons purchase by a participating
    Federal Firearms Licensed dealer, P E R I O D .

    Now in a free country, you really could just sell a truck and toss a rifle in the passenger seat along with it. But that isn't what is going on here unfortunately.

    Yet one more time, henschman, THERE ARE NO ABSOLUTE RIGHTS!! I'm not going to support the kind of "freedom" that would allow a violent felon or an insane person to buy vehicle and get a firearm tossed in on the deal. You can bet that in short order other people's freedom would come to a quick halt.

    I wish the article would have said something along the lines of "Buy a truck, get something less likely to kill someone for free!" :D

    Yes, because our laws are so great that insane people or felons NEVER get weapons illegaly, right?

    I think its a great sales tactic. obviously he isn't sat next to a crate of ak47's with a ciggarette hanging out of his mouth and bandalero's over his shoulders. talking in a mexican accent like " joo want deez guunz hoomz,".

    it just highlights peoples fears about people OTHER THAN THEM owning guns. its a control issue imho.
