for me, this is what's wrong with the world today.
for a minute, let's forget about global warming
let's forget about how the car manufacturing business in the US is in dire straits, and focus on car dealer mark muller, who's giving away an AK-47 with every truck purchase.
he was interviewed on CNN recently. at the start of the 5-minute interview, he spent 9 seconds talking about how many cars he sold during the LAST promotion when they gave away HAND GUNS with every truck purchase, and how they hope to top that with this current promotion.
when asked by the interviewer whether he thought he was being slightly irresponsible for giving away semi-assault weapons, he replied that she was 'grandstanding' - (yeah, because giving away a gun with a truck ISN'T grandstanding. no, not at all).
the rest of the interview was spent justifying the use and ownership of guns (of any type).
topics covered included: the local crime rate (specifically the "P" problem in missouri); how criminals have 'lost their souls', that God wouldn't want him to be a victim; and that with a gun, at least he has a 'sporting chance'.
these are some of the pearls of wisdom that came out of his mouth:
"felons buy cars too" (pointing out that they give a voucher for the gun, so that gun rules and regulations can be adhered to).
"because we sell cars" (when asked why their motto is "God, guns, guts and american pick up trucks")
"You don't think God would want us to defend ourselves" (in response to the interviewer's question as to why God is in their motto. this was closely followed by:
"you don't have a problem with God, do you?" [way to deflect dude]
"they didn't have guns back then" (when the interviewer tried to make sense of his explanation and pondered 'would jesus carry a gun?'
"the only 911 call i wanna make is chambering a round" (when noting the 15 minute police response time in his area).
the often speechless and flabbergasted interviewer barely held her own, and was probably questioning her decision to get out of bed that morning!
