New Hampshire Car Dealership Unveils "Buy A Car, Get An AR" Promotion

Tyler Durden's picture

While car salesmen are infamous for their innovative and crafty sales methods, Hagan's Motor Pool Auto Repair and Sales in Rochester, NH has just taken marketing to a whole new level...

Mike Hagan, the owner of Hagan's, who as the Washington Post reports is a combat veteran who served in Afghanistan, is offering a promotion unlike any other: "Buy a car, get an AR." The promotion is being done in conjunction with a local firearms store that completes the required background checks. Car buyers who pass the background checks and subsequently receive the AR-15 will then just send Hagan the bill afterward. "We're giving these weapons away for responsible people that can lawfully obtain them and we're confident that they're going to maintain them responsibly" Hagan said of the program.

The campaign has increased sales, and thus far it is reported that Hagan has given away four AR-15s and one 9mm handgun, which is offered if customers decline the rifle.

Here is a screenshot from Hagan's Facbook page showing the promotion as well:

Of course, the timing of the reporting on the program couldn't have come at a worse time for Hagan, as the US is still digesting the mass shooting in Orlando. Hagan notes that the program, which started in May, "wasn't started to make any sort of message or political statement. It happened well before the terrible attacks in Orlando."

Some local residents aren't fond of the program. "To me that's just getting more of the nutjobs out to do even more harm to people that don't deserve it" said Jen Marks, a local resident. However, Hagan wrote on Facebook that there has been a lot of positive feedback.

From WaPo

On Friday, Hagan wrote on Facebook that he’d had lots of “positive feedback” and “very little negativity coming our way.”

 

“Some of the negative feedback has accused me of being bigoted towards certain sexual orientations,” the post said. “Anyone who knows me, knows this is the farthest thing from the truth. I believe regardless of race, political affiliation, sexual orientation, or any of that, you have a right do defend yourself. I believe in equality, and by learning how to properly and responsible operate a firearm you make yourself equal with all who would attempt to attack you.

 

Hagan told NH1-TV that he isn’t worried about the possibility that the weapons from his giveaway will be used to harm the public. He told the station that he will refuse to sell someone a weapon if he gets an uneasy feeling about them.

* * *

Hagan concluded by saying "I could worry about the same thing with a car being used to hurt other people. In the end, that kind of heinous crime is in the heart." - that's the type of rational statement that may warrant some serious IRS auditing the next time Hagan files his business taxes.

Forget car sales and look at how today the Supreme Court gutted the Constitution.  Today, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-3 ruling, overturned the Utah Supreme and allowed the evidence from an illegal search be used as evidence based on a "technicality."  Associate Justice Stephen Breyer, a so-called liberal, ruled with the majority.  The same Breyer who previously voted to allow the police to take and keep DNA samples from people who had just been arrested for a crime, in a 5-4 decision that had Associate Justice Scalia was in the minority, voting for the 4th Amendment.  Breyer is a fifth-columnist jurist, a liberal when he is in the 5-4 minority.  What dirt the NSA has on Breyer is anyone's guess, but Breyer is under the NWO's thumb.

If they were giving away a guillotine with each car purchase, I'd buy 10.

10,000 additional people killed every year in auto accidents due to lightweight designs to meet CAFE and environmental standards.. No liberals are calling for the end of the slaughter caused by their bullshit agenda

It can have the opposite effect too, making cars so heavy they get shorty gas milage. Consider a Honda civic from 30 years ago, got 40 mpgs or so. A new one, with all the modern engine technology that makes far more power, yet still gets about the same milage. The reason? It's twice as heavy to meet impact standards.

Compare the sizes and you will find that modern versions are much larger.

Today's small cars are equal in size to midsize sedans of 2 decades ago.

Ignatius's picture

Yes!  But please, put away the bull balls.

Right now I'm trying to justify driving 3,000 miles to purchase a car.  I'm thinking I probably won't be using their Service Department though, free oil or not.

I am sure it is a coinncidence but the gun store in Rochester NH that was supplying the guns burnt down last night.

"Neighbors said the buildings burned in the fire -- an apartment building, Phagins Bar & Grill and Renaissance Firearms -- have been around for a very long time.

"These houses are 150 years old, so they're pretty dried out," said Bob Longo.

News 9’s Mike Cronin spoke with Ernie Shipman, the owner of the gun shop, who said he had 500 guns in stock, as well as ammunition."

Rochester NH is not the kind of place you want to visit or live  in.

OMG! That is way cool I think.

I would have expected this from Texas, not NH....

Too bad Cow Hampshire is poluted with a ton of transplanted Massholes.

Idiot leftists from Taxachusetts that left the Bay State to get away from high taxes and who are voting for the same kind of idiots who ruined where they escaped from.

 

I think each state should adopt a state citizenship.  People who move from another state have to wait 5 years before they can vote in their new state.

Dealerships in Texas have been giving away guns with cars for as long as there have been cars.

Lonesome Crow's picture

Do they have to be hidden in a locked box to stave off violation of the 4th ammendment too?

e_goldstein's picture

No. In Texas you have the right to carry a concealed and loaded weapon in your car that is readily accessible.

Lonesome Crow's picture

Can you carry it in to restaurants and night clubs?

KJWqonfo7's picture

LEGAL carry is not allowed in places that make more than 51% of their business from alcohol sales. 

That makes most bars a no-no for law abiding citizens.

Lonesome Crow's picture

I see. Thanks.

 

But, hey, if you are designated driver that night, why not be designated defender in another sense too?

This is the first time in my memory that a "Northeast" State has had an offer like this. There are a lot more supporters of all the Rights in the National and State Constitutions in New England and the Mid Atlantic region than is assumed.

All the "State Constitutions must conform to the rights in the National Constitution except for Alaska and Hawaii. In case you didn't know Alaska and Hawaii are not Republics but really Federal Territory. Of course no body gives a shit that the Republics are a thing of the past and all States act as subsidiaries of the Federal Government.

We have our share of libtards, but keep in mind, 2 out of 6 constitutional carry states are in New England and with the exception of MA, all states allow open carry. NH will eventually be Constitutional Carry, but for now you have to pay 10 bucks and wait 3-4 days for a 4 year permit that is good in bars, night clubs, courthouse, etc.

e_goldstein's picture

That is actually less of a burden than in Texas.

If you legally want to carry a handgun, you have to take a course, apply for a permit, and pay $140 for the initial that lasts 4 years, and then $70 every 5 years after that. The state derives so much revenue from the program I doubt we will ever have Constitutional carry here.

You are right about gun promotions in Texas.  Over 35 years ago, I remember reading how a Texas bank offered customers a free shotgun if they took out a five year $5,000 certificate of deposit at what seemed a low interest rate to me. 

e_goldstein's picture

Sure beats the hell out of a Spiderman towel.

Collectivism Killz's picture

Well, to be fair, we have always had open carry, are bordered by ME and VT (both constitutional carry states), you can pack heat in the legislature and courtrooms....come to think of it, my pediatrician and BuyBuy Baby are the only places I can't carry other than schools. Oh, we also don't have to worry about dyke cops fingering high school girls during traffic stops.

e_goldstein's picture

Oh yeah, I'm not bragging, or saying it's a bad thing. I've spent time in New England, and almost everyone that I met had a gun, even in mAss. Some of those people even had a FID card, but not all of them, and not even most of them.

Well their state motto IS "Live Free or Die."

Nobodys Home's picture

Are you kidding? Everone in NH has guns. Even the Libtards!

Can't wait for the election!

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

That's a cheap 'AR'.  I want a Noveske.

mtl4's picture

Absolutely brilliant move by the folks in the "Live free or die" state.........just make sure to lose those sales records ASAP.

I live in TX, effn liberals here too and call themselves repubs...

Fuck You john cornyn!

 

The two separate gun control measures sponsored by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., fail to reach the threshold for a procedural vote in the Senate.

Does the AR have Bluetooth?  What apps are pre-installed?

More Ammo's picture

 

Hmm, use your smartphone as a gunsight...

Is that what they call Tacticool? 

Their infrared option is kind of expensive considering others in the market...

N0TaREALmerican's picture

 

It does, and if the car you buy has Bluetooth, you can use the car audio to fire the gun;  which is convenient if you get the optional hood forward-firing mounting attachment.

I'd rather have a mortar.   If I take the upgrade package on the car, will I get the mortar.   

(I only need it for the dog barking at night a few blocks away.   Damn dog won't stop barking.   A mortar would be very useful)

If you install Progressives gps tracking device you are eligable for a weapons upgrade to this:

http://www.colt.com/Catalog/Military/Products/Colt-M203-40mm-Grenade-Lau...

It creates a versatile combination weapon system, capable of firing both 5.56mm rifle ammunition as well as the complete range of 40mm high explosive and special purpose ammunitions.....our dog destroyer is quite popular.

Progressive has partnered in this promotion to enable you to keep your family safe.

Co-op advertising Baby! It's The Bomb!

To be fair, you probably don't have the skills to use a mortar. But thanks to your recent Supreme Court ruling in Canada, you can always go blow that dog asleep.

as longs as he doesn't sell cars to FAGGOTS it's ok by me

the last thing this country needs is FAGGOTS being able to SHOOT BACK! (hillary would hate that)
