"Down here we all believe in God, guts and guns"

Post below recycled from Michelle Malkin

A Missouri car dealer has launched a special giveaway: $250 worth of gas…or a free semi-automatic handgun.

Incoming bitter/clingy attack in 3, 2, 1…

Via the Kansas City Star:
Need a new car? How about a new handgun, too? You can get both at the Max Motors car dealership in Butler, Mo. And the gun is free… Buyers can choose either the $250 gun coupon or one of equal value for gasoline… Moore knows a "Free Handgun" ad would probably draw protests in some places, but not in Butler, about an hour south of Kansas City on U.S. 71. "Down here we all believe in God, guts and guns," Moore said.

That’s in one of those “states in the middle,” Barack.


Vid from KMBC spotlights the Max Motors deal:

OH: Burglar shot: "Trumbull County Prosecutor Dennis Watkins on Thursday called Deputy Anthony Diehl's actions last December ``a textbook example of justifiable homicide by a police officer responding to a call and doing his duty while at the same time risking his own safety and life to protect us all." John Wade McGrath Jr., 48, 7818 Saddler Krohler Road, Gustavus, died Dec. 22 of a gunshot wound to the chest after a bullet from Diehl's weapon entered near the armpit, Watkins said. McGrath was pronounced dead just before 3 a.m. at St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown. McGrath Jr. was shot after pulling a gun on the deputy while intoxicated. An autopsy showed McGrath's blood-alcohol content was 0.23. The legal limit in Ohio to be considered driving under the influence is 0.08. The autopsy also showed the presence of cocaethylene, which is formed in the body when cocaine and alcohol are taken at the same time - according to the report - as well as cocaine, the sedatives diazepam and nordiazepam, and the opiates hydrocodone and oxycodone".

AL: Charges dropped in car-wash killing: "Jaheem Jordan was accused of shooting and killing 35-year-old Thomas Briggs at a Mobile car wash on Saturday, April 26. Attorneys on both sides of the case now say Jordan acted in self defense. A Mobile County judge agreed, so all charges against Jordan have been dropped and he is a free man. On the request of prosecutors who normally fight to prove guilt, Mobile County Judge George Hardesty dropped the murder charge against Jordan. Authorities agree, Jordan killed in self defense after two men, strangers, approached him at Bebo's and threatened him. "He actually pleaded with them to leave him alone, backed away from them, said, 'Please, don't do this,'" says Jordan's attorney, L.D. Holt."
