United States: Getting a gun free with your vehicle

This can only happen in the United States, where the Constitution (reinforced by various Supreme Court judgments) has made it possible for almost anybody to buy almost any type of weapon, except for a few class of heavy weapons. You could go to a gun show and buy a machine gun without any problem, or go to a regular shop, and after a cooling off period of 7 days, buy guns to your heart’s desire. However, this post is not a direct commentary on the Second Amendment, more about the connection between people who buy trucks and who also buy guns (link to article):

Buy a truck and get a free AK-47 gun. That’s the deal a Missouri truck dealer is offering new customers who buy a pick-up truck in August. Mark Muller, owner of Max Motors in Butler, says he knows people will be bothered by the promotion.
But not to worry, Muller is not handing out free guns. Instead, he will give buyers a voucher to use at a gun store after they obtain a license to carry a concealed weapon.

Wonder how many people are bothered by the fact that owning a gun is now made an incentive; you buy a vehicle and you get a free assault rifle; and keep in mind that an AK-47 is not a hunting assault rifle, it is a short distance multiple rounds per minute gun that is not accurate over the distances required for hunting.

    OK,let’s clarify a few things:
    1)85% of U.S. gun owners do not hunt on a regular basis-self defense and gun collecting are the primary motivations for gun ownership.
    2)The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting-other than the fact that many centerfire rifles and shotguns have good antipersonel capabilities that are covered under it.
    3)The 7.62x39mm AK round is ballisticaly nearly identical to the .30-30 win. hunting round and AK’s have similar range and accuracy.
    4)Concealed carry permits apply only to hanguns-you can legally carry most firearms openly in most states.
    5)Assault rifles are fully automatic machine guns-which are restricted.The variants sold in the U.S. are semi-auto only.They are not assault rifles.”Assault weapon” is liberoid sh*tspeak for any semi-auto firearm-it’s a made up term deliberately designed to confuse machine guns for ordinary semi-autos among those ignorant of firearms.
    6)There is no waiting period for any firearm in most states.
