[url]www.herald-mail.com/index.html[/url] "If the vehicle sale fell thru the gun would not be returned" I guess they were praying for gunowners with bad credit to apply. PISS ON FORD

LOL! I love it when a gun grab blows up in the grabber's face like that! :)

This is how a lot of people learn about media bias though. These folks thought that this "buy-back" would be adored by the community, because they probably get their news from Dan RatherBiased. Imagine their shock when they found out that such was not the case. Maybe they'll watch FOX News more often now?

Maybe those folks got a coupon for a big discount on Firestone's ATX, ATX II or Wilderness AT.

[b]Of the guns collected, those still operational would have been sent to the Maryland State Police headquarters in Pikesville for ballistics "fingerprint" testing, Mades said.[/b] What, turn in your guns, we'll give you a $1,000 credit on a car, then the guns will be test fired by the police to see if they were ever used in a crime. Am I reading that right? BOYCOTT Ford!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That may be true, but think of the pressure Ford will put on this dealer if these type of shennanigans cause Ford bad PR or lost sales. This could conceivably even cause a dealer to lose his franchise. I'll bet that a lot of F-series buyers are sportsmen and gun owners and Ford doesn't want anything that might tarnish their image with this crowd.

I like the part about the gun not being returned if the deal fell thru. Almost sounds like the stealership planning to fuck a few of the locals out of their weapons with the promise of a "deal". I hope this one comes back and bites that Ford stealership in the ass, hard.

And I thought Californians were stupid.

[b] Customers who wanted to take advantage of the gun buyback before it was canceled can still get a $1,000 break on a vehicle purchase, Carper said.[/b] It should be obvious from this that the gun had nothing at all to do with the price of the deal, but was just a public relations gimmick. Probably more insulting to realize these guys were gun-grabbers without even a moral basis.

Folks, this Ford dealership is in the nice part of Maryland in the mountains away from the cesspools of DC and Baltimore. However the Ford dealership screwed up, they hired a Bethesda, inside-the-Beltway marketing company which came up with this stunt. But I agree--boycott Ford. GunLvr
