Alabama car dealership offers free shotgun, bible, and American flag to customers

Ward said a few customers have already taken advantage of the deal and that he gets several Facebook inquiries a day. "I just want to reach out to everybody in the area and let y'all know we're gonna be celebrating July 4 a little bit differently this year".

Koby Palmer, the general manager, stands in front of a pick-up truck with an American flag on it in the video.

The Fourth of July promotion is meant to be patriotic and not political, Palmer said.

"Not only are they gonna get the great deals and service we provide here, they're also gonna get a Bible, and American flag and also a 12-gauge shotgun", Palmer said in the video, which shows the amenities that come with the purchase of a new or used auto.

"Wow", another wrote. "That is violently American". "It was just something we just threw together". "We live in a small town of 1,200 people".

All in all, we can't think of a more fitting Fourth of July promotion for the land that bred American greats like the late Hank Williams Sr.

"We don't want anyone to get the wrong idea", Palmer told Newsweek.

He also said customers could not drive off the lot with a new gun. The store isn't stocked with guns and isn't handing them out like candy. "If the customers do not want or cannot purchase a gun, they can use the certificate for something else". If the background check clears, they get their 12-gauge shotgun.
