  1. KANSAS CITY, Missouri (Reuters) - A Missouri car dealer said on Thursday sales have soared at his auto and truck business since launching a promotion this week that promises buyers a free handgun or a $250 gas card with every purchase.
    Max Motors, a small Butler, Missouri dealership that has as its logo a grimacing cowboy wielding a pistol, has sold more than 30 cars and trucks in the last three days, far more than its normal volume. And owner Mark Muller credits his decision to start offering buyers their choice of a $250 gas card or a $250 credit at a gun shop.
    "This thing has taken off. Sales have quadrupled," said Muller. The store sells both used and new vehicles including General Motors and Ford products.
    Every buyer so far "except one guy from Canada and one old guy" has elected to take the gun, Muller said. Muller recommends his customers select a Kel-Tec .380 pistol.
    "It's a nice little handgun that fits in your pocket," he said.
    Muller said the promotion was inspired by Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, who is vying with Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic nominee for the presidential election in November.
    "We did it because of Barack Obama. He said all those people in the Midwest, you've got to have compassion for them because they're clinging to their guns and their Bibles. I found that quite offensive."
    "We all go to church on Sunday and we all carry guns," said Muller. "I've got a gun in my pocket right now. I have a rifle in my truck. We've got to shoot the coyotes out here, they're attacking our cows, our chickens. We're not clinging to nothing. We're just **** glad to live in a free country where you can have a gun if you want. This is the way it ought to be."

    I hope he sells a thousand cars and that the Obfuscatin' Obama campaign gets its nose rubbed in the fact that one major sales point for his cars is Obama's having mocked small town Americans' love of church and firearms.

  9. Now that's my kind of offer.

    I'd sure like to know how many opted for the gas card and how many opted for the gun credit? I mean with most in that area already having guns, and with gas costing what it does, I wonder how many figured, well, I've got a few guns, could used some extra cash for gas, and have opted for the gas card? Just curious...
