Fallacious right-wing rumors declaring that President Obama is an enemy to the Constitutionally protected right for American’s to bear arms is pushing one Butler, Missouri car salesman to offer his customers an unreal purchase incentive. Mark Muller, a purveyor of fine American made automobiles, is seeking to get rid of the gas-guzzling items in his inventory by giving away a free Kalashnikov semi-automatic rifle with every purchase of a pick-up truck.

Toting the business slogan: “God, Guns, and American Pick-Up Trucks,” Max Motors has seen business boom, propelling its owner to semi-celebrity status by gaining the support of groundbreaking and influential citizens such as Mancow, Rusty, Humphries, and Rush Limbaugh while securing valuable television time with likes of Fox News, the BBC, and Al Jazeera.

The deal, an offshoot of the highly successful promotion conducted last year that saw hundreds of motorists leave Max Motors with a car and a brand new handgun, has allowed the firearm known across the world as “the weapon of terrorists” to be owned by any proud red-blooded American. In spite of the positive media coverage, a proverbial dark cloud can be spotted on the horizon, bringing into question the mindset that is propelling this seemingly unthinkable offer into the realm of success.

Political and journalistic speculators have called in to question the reasoning for giving the AK-47 away, with all conclusions resounding coming back to a concern that seems to have originated within Republican ranks. Since the inauguration of President Obama, gun sales in the nation have increased incredibly, with some populations experiencing a registration inflation of nearly one hundred hold; all amid concerns that he would make gun ownership rules more rigid, thus restricting the ownership of certain types or firearms.

To date, President Obama has promised to do otherwise. Muller has been adamant that fear has not been the motivation for the promotion that has seen many drive away in American made vehicles with the legendary Russian made death-dealer; rather, the father of four cites crime at the programs impetus. “This is about the right of defending me and my family. There is a lot of worry about crime, we have a methamphetamine problem around here and people just want to protect themselves.”

Now wouldn’t it be ironic if one of the meth dealers he “sold” the gun and truck too got hooked on his own supply and decided to visit Muller’s house and pick out a few things. Then who would be the blame?
