Well, with abortion effectively banned there, I guess shotgun weddings and a new car for the couple go together.

"Customers can't drive off the lot with a new gun, though: They must take their gift card to a participating firearms dealer to redeem it, he said."

When I won a rifle at a county fair in Idaho......I was handed the rifle.

Our freedoms are taken away....even in Alabama.

That is a VERY small dealer in Chatom. It’s just a last ditch effort to lure customers that have been going to the bigger dealers in Mobile.

This seems to be a very effective promotion, though of course the cost of the guns, flags and bibles are all added to the sales price.

Sell me the vehicle cheaper than the dealer up the road, and I'll buy. No silly gimmicks needed. If you can't do that, then I'm not interested.

It says free shotgun. Not all shotguns are made the same. Most likely it’s the smallest, cheapest, and weakest shotgun they have available, probably barely worth using for small bird hunting or home defense.

What freedom has been taken away? Zero. You mean the dealer doesn’t want to be responsible for having X number of guns on hand? Or to buy more than they need for the promo? Maaa free dumbs been stolen
