Auto Dealership Offers Free AK-47 With Purchase Of Truck

SANFORD, Fla. -  A Sanford truck dealership is running a special promotion, offering a free AK-47 with the purchase of a used truck.

Nations Trucks in Sanford kicked off the promotion on Veterans Day.General sales manager Nick Ginetta said the promotion will run until the end of the month.

He said anyone who purchases a truck will receive a $400 voucher to a local gun store. He said customers will have to go through the application process and qualify under state and federal laws. Ginetta said any buyers who don't want a gun will be given cash.

Ginetta said 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 also believes it's a perfect Veterans Day promotion."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 said.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 they are thinking about extending the promotion to the end of the year.

    Man accused of assault after putting wife with dementia on leash

    A Maryland man is facing a simple assault charge after using a dog leash to lead his wife around a Pennsylvania fair because she has late-stage dementia.    West Manchester police say Walter Wolford yanked the 8-inch long red nylon leash, causing his wife's head to jerk back and leave red marks around her throat. But the 66-year-old Hagerstown man says he only gently tugged on the leash, which he uses to keep his wife from getting lost.
