Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

All But Two

Buy a Car, Get a Gun

The dealer says every buyer has selected the gun, "except one guy from Canada and an old guy"

A Missouri car dealership is offering a free gun with every car purchase. Max Motors is offering customers the choice between a $250 gas card or a hand gun. Most have chosen the gun.

Owner Mark Muller said: "We're just damn glad to live in a free country where you can have a gun if you want to."

The dealership sells used and new cars mostly GM models and has a logo of of a cowboy holding a pistol.

In the past three days the dealership has sold 30 cars and trucks, an increase which the owners say is due to their promotional offer.

Muller recommends a Kel-Tec .380 pistol, which he describes as "a nice little handgun that fits in your pocket". He added that the promotion was inspired by recent comments from one of the Democratic nominees for the presidential election, saying: "We did it because of Barack Obama.

"He said all those people in the Midwest, you've got to have compassion for them because they're clinging to their guns and their Bibles. I found that quite offensive. We all go to church on Sunday and we all carry guns."

The website advertisement for the offer, which continues until the end of the month, mentions that an approved background check on gun ownership is required.

See Max's site.
I see the Obamessiah really did offend a lot of people in flyover country. There have been a number of similar giveaways I'm aware of, but the ones I can remember here in Tucson have usually been a Marlin lever-action rifle or something similar, not a handgun suitable for concealment.

All I can say is, I bet the firearm industry is looking at this election with a combination of hope and fear. If the Democrats win, their sales will likely skyrocket.

For a while.

Also, there's a survey! "Do you think offering a free gun with the purchase of a new car is a good idea?" Of the 4600 people who've responded so far, 65% say "Yes."
