The cars they are selling kill far more people than the shotguns.

Well, I guess if this is all about rights and freedom and corporate oppression and so forth, maybe he could switch to giving away a free trip to a Florida abortion clinic, all expenses paid. Flag sticker included.

The bible is used to pray that your Ford will start.

The flag is to be flown upside down (the universal sign of distress) when your prayer isn't answered.

Lastly, when all else has failed, use the shotgun to put your Ford out of its misery.

Thus the term - F.O.R.D. (Found On Road Dead), in this case from gunshot wounds.

They weren't free. You bought the car, you paid dearly for that gun.

I think it's genius! I mean, think about it. When you buy a Ford, you're going to have a long trek back to town through some dangerous territory full of critters like snakes and gators, so having a gun for that hike back will come in very handy!

Our freedoms are taken away....even in Alabama.
It's easy. They want irresponsible people to have more dumb kids to make it more difficult for the responsible people.
