A while back some banks we're offering free guns when you opened an account with them. What a great idea to arm people so they can come back to rob you Only in America.

The only reason I can shoot left handed is so I can pick off zombies while riding.

Since when do you need a gun to rob a bank?

you'll shoot your eye out! Good promo, I have seen it hear with used cars, usually shotguns. Maybe the real estate market should try that, buy a house, get a free semi auto rifle. LOL

The Pinellas Park dealer is actually offering a $150.00 voucher that can be used at two licensed gun brokers, or for a motorcycle training class, or even a Wal-Mart gift card.

Dealer Ronnie Pownall said they decided to lure customers with the promise of the gun after doing their own research.

"The number two things trending on the internet right now are handguns and electronic cigarettes and we chose handguns," said Pownall.

What would Thomas Jefferson have thought about all this!

Well if you live in the USA you should care! But many don't!

I own a ton of guns! And even more ammo!

CCW all the way! Although a hand gun would not infuence me to purchase a bike.

This spring I will set up targets and practice shooting from the V again! Its really fun!

Its awesome living in the USA!! Rock on!!

Garage
At least by purchasing the motorcycle the handgun recipient has to be approved for a drivers license and have good credit, so they are probably responsible enough not to do anything stupid with it.

Interestingly countries that have a firearms license (requiring a formal background and reference check) to purchase ammo, own or purchase one average less than 50 firearm related murders a year, the US averages 11,500 a year. Coincidence?

I have a Victorinox Swiss Army knife, which is pretty handy and all that is needed in Canada to feel good and secure.

Unfortunately I work in & have to travel thru too many areas infested with hoodrats. They leave me alone only because I'm too unhealthy to screw with.

Well actually, a pair of foward mounted rocket launchers and a rear facing mine deployment device would help me feel safer. A little handgun just isn't enough these days

I CCW three weapons on my V!

I feel the same way! I can never have enough fire power!
I love it! Its the wild west!

Of course this will all end soon as the kids now think the government should take care of them! Oh and they will! I just decided to live it up, and have fun my last few year of glory!
