article imageFlorida truck dealership offers free AK-47 with purchase

Sanford - A Florida truck dealership is running a special promotion, offering a free assault rifle with the purchase of a used truck. The promotion kicked off Veterans Day and runs through the end of the month.
Nations Trucks General sales manager Nick Ginetta said the promotion will run at least until November 30. He said anyone who purchases a truck will receive a $400 voucher to a local gun store.
Ginetta added that the customers ability to qualify to own a AK-47 is their responsibility to determine. They will have to go through the application process, like any other potential firearms owner, and qualify under all applicable state and federal laws.
Ginetta said, "Any buyers who purchase a truck during the same period and do not want to an assault rifle or any gun or can't meet the requirements for purchase, will be given four hundred in cash as a rebate."
Ginetta told WKMG news that he knows the promotion is controversial, but he believes it will bring in business, and he said it's already working. At the close of business Thursday, he said the business had 47 appointments scheduled for Friday. Normally, he said there's only three.
Ginetta said he believes this is a perfect promotion for Veterans Day. "We started on Veterans Day, saying, 'Hey, so many have given so much for this right,'" Ginetta said.
Phillip Adams, a veteran, said the promotion is a bad idea. "An AK-47 is a very dangerous weapon," Adams told ClickOrlando.
He said he'd rather they give customers a free flag with a pole to put up in their yard.
"That would be a lot more supportive for our country and our veterans," Adams said.
Ginetta said because of the increase in new customers visiting the car dealership, rising sales figures and the general popularity and interest generated by the Veterans Day, free AK-47 promotion, they are thinking about extending the special deal to the end of the year.
