A car dealership in Florida has launched an unusual promotion - a free AK-47 rifle with every truck purchased.
Nations Trucks, in Sanford, promises to pay for a Soviet-style assault rifle for anyone who buys one of its used trucks.
The dealership has more than doubled sales since the offer was announced last week, according to Nick Ginetta, the general sales manager.
Mr Ginetta said the firm did not hand out guns itself but gave customers a $400 voucher which could be redeemed for a rifle at a local firearms shop.
"I don’t think it sends the wrong message," said Mr Ginetta, who insisted the dealership was merely allowing customers to assert their rights under the Second Amendment of the Constitution.
"You don’t need to buy a truck to go and buy an AK-47," he told local television. "You have the right to do that as long as you meet all state and federal laws. So it’s just a promotion."
