Car Dealer Offers Free Gun With Every Purchase
 
By The Associated Press

BUTLER, Mo.  --  Salesmen at one Missouri car dealership aren't just kicking in a free CD player or factory air: They're offering a free handgun with every purchase.

Through the end of the month, car buyers at Max Motors in Butler will have a choice -- $250 toward either a gun purchase or gasoline.

General manager Walter Moore said that so far, most buyers have chosen the gun, adding that he suggests they opt for a semiautomatic model "because it holds more rounds."

(In the fine print, the ad on the Web site explains, "Check written toward purchase price" and also mentions, "Approved Background Check REQUIRED!!")

Moore said he suspects his "Free Handgun" ad will draw protests in some places. But not in Butler, about 65 miles south of Kansas City.

Moore said, "Down here, we all believe in God, guts and guns."

I wish we saw that in South Africa! Maybe we can shoot the hi-jackers instead of counting ourselves "lucky" that they only took the car. We have brazen daylight hi-jacks on a daily basis. As one stops to open the gate to your house, the crooks (who do not need a competency card or lic) just take your car at gunpoint.
This is just one of many :

Philip de Bruin, Beeld

Johannesburg - With a pistol to her head, actress Tamarin du Toit begged her attackers, "Please just don't shoot me!"

She was later grabbed by the hair and yanked from her vehicle, thrown to the ground and kicked in the stomach.

Tamarin played the role of Cat in the M-Net soapie, Egoli.

The hijacking took place on Tuesday night at a friend's house in a security complex in Melville, Johannesburg.

She said: "I stopped at the intercom to ask for the gate to be opened. My window was open, of course.

'I was terrified'

"The next moment, I just saw a hand at the window and a pistol was pressed against my head. The hijacker warned me that he would kill me if I dared scream.

"I was terrified and just begged him to please not kill me," Tamarin said on Thursday - the first time she had felt strong enough to talk about the attack.

"The hijacker opened my door and he and his accomplice yanked me violently from the car and threw me to the ground.

"One of them kicked me in the stomach. I was in extreme shock. They got in my car and sped off.

"I remember realising my handbag was still in the car and shouted, 'Please just throw out my handbag' - but it was no use.

"Now I have no cellphone, no bank card and no ID document - nothing."

a ford dealer somewhere in minnesota was doing that too, but when you bought a new f-150 or f-250 they gave you a new weatherby vanguard with the purchase of the truck.
