Alabama Car Dealership Offers Shotgun, Bible and Flag With Every Purchase

Right now through July 31, if you purchase a auto or pickup truck from Chatom Ford, you'll also receive a Bible, an American flag, and a real-deal shotgun.

Ward said a few customers have already taken advantage of the deal and that he gets several Facebook inquiries a day.

The promotion lasts through July 31.

According to WTVT, to qualify, a buyer must be 18 or older, have valid ID and pass all background checks associated with owning a firearm in Alabama.

"Hey y'all, this is Koby Palmer over here at Chatom Ford in Chatom, Alabama, " Palmer, the general manager of Chatom Ford, said in the video.

"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 vehicle.

The items are gifts to customers who purchase a vehicle. "It's not like we're just walking around and handing out guns", Palmer said.

Palmer noted the promo was "just showing support for our local community". Palmer said the dealership has partnerships with firearm affiliates in both MS and Alabama, so the new vehicle owner would get a certificate to take to get the gun affiliate, who performs the background check. Instead, customers are given a certificate that allows them to pick out their own shotgun. "Anyone that doesn't 100% agree with what we're portraying, we're not trying to force our beliefs on anybody".
