This commercial SHOULD be funny, but it's not

    A couple months ago, a Houston man stopped a home invasion by running down the street with his Desert Eagle and intervening. Here's the story. http://www.khou.com/news/Bellaire-m...er-neighbor-robbed-at-gunpoint-139325908.html

    Turns out that the Double Eagle-toting Lone Ranger is a car salesman (owner?) at my local Chevy dealer and he is now trying to capitolize on his 2 minutes of fame from February. Watch this clip. It should be funny, but as a citizen of the community in which he works, I have to wonder what the effective range of his .50 is. I'm about 3 miles from his dealership. The way he's "controlling" his fire and then waving his muzzle around, do you think I'm safe or do I need to sandbag the south side of my house? :cuss:

    On the positive side, now I know the Chevy dealer is gun-friendly. Sadly, I know the salesman is gun-stupid.

    I'd probably write the dealership and express that if I lived there. As a matter of fact, I may do it anyway. 4 rules always apply...even during commercials.

    That just wasn't even remotely funny. What was his thinking behind that?

    Looks like an accident waiting to happen. The news media always focuses on the NUTS!

    If I were going to spend money on advertising, I would have hired some hot girls to prance around the cars & trucks. A hot girl sitting on the hood of a jacked-up truck would sell a lot more cars than this guy...
