Buy a Truck, Get a Free AK-47

From Yahoo! News:

SANFORD, Fla. – A central Florida dealership trying to drum up business is offering an unusual perk for potential used-truck buyers: A free AK-47 assault rifle.

General sales manager Nick Ginetta says that since the promotion was announced on Veterans Day, business has more than doubled at Nations Trucks in Sanford.

Customers would have to pass a background check before using the $400 gun shop voucher. They also have the option of using the money toward other firearms, or they can request a check in that amount instead.

Wait… You get a gun voucher? And you can use that toward any gun or just get a check? So isn’t that just a $400 rebate? Weak sauce.
