Despite the White House harassment, and the loss of financing and insurance arrangements that came in the past, the Butler, Mo., car dealer who will be giving away AK-47’s again starting in October.

“Guess what? We are doing it again! It is the Fourth Annual Great Guns and Gas Give-Away!” said Mark Muller, the owner of Max Motors, whose July 17, 2009 interview with CNN’s Carol Costello about his promotion was great publicity, but brought him unwelcome attention.

Within days of the CNN broadcast, three agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrived at the dealership, he said.
The next day, Muller received a call from the ATF asking him to come in for a meeting with all of his personal guns, which they insisted they had to authority to order, he said. Muller held his ground and refused to submit to the audit without first going through due process.

“The ATF people were just as nice as can be. They were not mean or hateful—and finally I asked the lady on the phone: Don’t you have something better to do?” he said. He then re-explained that there were vouchers for guns and that no guns were being given away.

“She said: ‘Let me tell you how important this is, the White House started their morning with a briefing on you. We got a call from Washington, D.C. this morning. They wanted you checked out,” he said.

Of course he would. He'd order the WH staff to buy cars, and then confiscate the balls and shoes for his personal use.

In "Bowling for Columbine" Michael Moore made it look like you just strolled in the bank, plopped your CD (several thousand bucks) money down and walked out with a Weatherby. No mention of the voucher, form 4473, FFL transfer or common sense. Unfortunately the unwashed masses of liberal scum believe every bit of semen soaked dribble that spews forth from Jabba's, no doubt, nasty mouth. I'm not really suprised that they think he's handing out AK's on the street corner.

Curious the Administration would get involved with this, yet, they stay clear from Fast and Furious.

Why would they? The US government is giving them AKs for free.

I love the guys at Max Motors for doing this, particularly in an election cycle where Obama is already "under the gun" for not having done anything anti-gun to appease all the anti-gunners who voted for him exactly because they thought he would do something anti-gun. LIberty haters are gonna hate....Max Motors tells 'em to get fucked. Just....awesome!

This is astonishing. To be on the President's calendar at all is a serious indication that this White House is AWOL. The President should have briefing topics that include the economy, National security issues, and Intelligence issues. If he/they are focused on a gun giveaway in MO they are more incompetent than anyone could ever imagine. Everything they seem to do is based on left wing interests, pandering to their special interests, and reelection. The world we knew is no more. What is next is the question.

I was about to say, this administration having a briefing on X does not automatically imply to me that X is actually important.

I remember Moore stating in the film that the owner of the bank also held an FFL, and I also remember them showing him filling out the 4473, he commented on how ridiculous the questions were, as if someone would admit on the form that they're a fugitive from justice or was adjudicated mentally defunct. I don't remember any background check shown so it did make it seem like you just answer no to a bunch of trivial questions then walk out.

If I was the dealer I would tell them to come to me. I would then set up a conference room with all my personal guns on the table in plain view of the press and my cameras.
And then let the fun begin!

Let me tell you how important this is, the White House started their morning with a briefing on you.


Wait, wait, I have a question:

I don't care one whit what those morons do. Why does them having a briefing about something make it improtant?

I'll be glad when the ATF is disbanded.

Something about never inviting the man into your life. His time is valuable, why should the ATF get to consume a finite resource that they cannot replace once their witch-hunt proves fruitless.

FWIW, this is not the first time they've done this:

One can only imagine what's going on at ATF headquarters these days. I guess this is just one more of those executive decisions that sounded like a great idea at the time, as they were all sitting around a conference call. It's really disturbing to witness what's happening with our government.

It would be better to have one gun on the table , preferably a large revolver .
