Need a Truck AND an AK-47? You're in luck! (sigh, Florida)

SANFORD --

A Seminole County car dealership said they will give you an AK-47 if you by a truck from them.

Nations Trucks started the promotion on Veterans Day. Under the terms of the deal, when you buy a truck, you get a voucher for $400. You can then take the voucher to a local gun store and buy an AK-47 or any other gun.

"You don't need to buy a truck to go and buy an AK-47,” said Nick Ginetta, the dealership’s manager. “You have the right to do that as long as you meet all state and federal laws. So it’s just a promotion and I don't think it sends the wrong message.”

Managers at the dealership said they started the promotion as a way to boost sales.

However, local veterans are really upset.

Some of them said they've been shot by an AK-47 and call the deal inappropriate.
It was actually a semi-big headline on the news tonight.

I'm actually surprised they spelled all those words correctly on their sign. Bravo!

But if you buy an AK-47 for $400, you could take it to the dealership and get a truck for free.

I like Mr. Salty's scenario better.

I think it's an effective ad campaign. Nations Trucks is now known across the country!

I love the reason that veterans are upset:
Some of them said they've been shot by an AK-47 and call the deal inappropriate.

Is this article written by a 5 year old?

As long as I get zero percent financing, I'm sold.

Nothing wrong with a Free AK, what is that 400-500$? Nice gift.
