A rural Alabama car dealership gives away a Bible, a 12-gauge shotgun and a US flag with the purchase of new or used vehicles as part of its 4th of July promotional campaign.
Chatom Ford, a dealer in Chatom, Ala., Went viral for the "God, weapons and freedom" campaign that runs until July 31st. Dealer manager Koby Palmer talks about the offer in a Facebook video that now has more than 60,000 views. In the video, Palmer pops his rifle in a hand and holds a bible in the other while standing in front of a pickup with an American flag draped over the tailgate.

Palmer said the sales team came up with the promo to adapt to the city's value. "It's a safe community. They are very proud of their country and almost everyone likes to hunt," he said, insisting on the fourth of July. Inspired campaign is meant to be patriotic, not political.
"We don't want anyone to get the wrong idea," said 29-year-old Newsweek. "It's not like we just go around and give out weapons."
He said the dealer collaborated with certified arms dealers in Alabama and Mississippi. When a customer buys a vehicle, they get a certificate to be retrieved to a gun dealer who then performs a background check. Once the background check has deleted, the customer must also present a sales car from the purchase of the car to get the gun free.
"This only shows support for our community," he told USA Today. "Anyone who does not agree with what we describe does not try to force our faith in anyone. We respect everyone who disagrees, no matter how violently they do."
