Holy Gunslingers!

Is there, I wonder, a sadder individual in the whole world than Mister Mark Muller of Butler, Missouri? Mister Muller owns Max Motors, a car dealership presently offering a handgun with every vehicle sold.[1]

It’s possible Mark Muller’s customers are even sadder individuals than he is. According to this automobile dealer, sales have quadrupled since he made the offer and he’s sold thirty motors in the last three days. All buyers, bar two, chose the gun over Mister Muller’s alternative, a $250 gas card.

According to Muller, he’s……

“……just damn glad to live in a free country where you can have a gun if you want to.”

Apparently, the idea for the gun giveaway came from Barack Obama’s comment that small town Americans cling to their guns and their Bibles.

Mister Muller says he was offended by the presidential nominee’s statement:

“We all go to church on Sunday and we all carry guns.”

Presumably, in case the pastor delivers a lousy sermon?

  1. Is there no hope at all?
    Didn’t Mike Moore’s doc cover a bank? If you opened a new account you got a gun?
    Sweet Jebus.
    Its a mentality I will never, ever understand.
