Guns n' Rovers
Totally off topic, but I just had to comment on this story on the BBC today. Max Motors, a car dealership in Missouri, is offering a free handgun with every vehicle sold. Said owner Mark Muller: "we're just damn glad to live in a free country where you can have a gun if you want to". Quite. The offer is working though - apparently sales have quadrupled. It seems that Mark came up with the promotion after taking offence at recent comments by Barack Obama: "He said all those people in the Midwest, you've got to have compassion for them because they're clinging to their guns and their Bibles. I found that quite offensive. We all go to church on Sunday and we all carry guns." Armed religious nutjobs? Now that is really scary.
