God, guns, guts and American pick-up trucks
A truck dealer
in Clay County, Missouri, has come up with a novel way to increase his sales and draw attention to his website.
Mark Muller, owner of Max
Motors, is giving away a free AK-47 assault rifle with every vehicle
sold. The cunning plan seems to have worked, and in an interview with
CNN Muller said that it spiked his company's web traffic. He estimates
his dealership sold 35 more cars during the promotion than it would
have without it.
Mueller is obviously a great fan of the Second Amendment, and his
company motto is: "God, Guns, Guts and American Pick-up Trucks." He
says the local community is facing a huge crime problem, and that
decent citizens need something more than a handgun to protect
"There's a tremendous crime problem around here with
people doing meth. These people have lost their souls. They don't care
about you. They don't care about me. They care about getting more dope."
Muller says he's hoping to sell 100 extra vehicles thanks to the online
promotion, and next year he's hoping the increased web traffic
generated by the assault rifle marketing scheme will land him 200 extra
