Video: The gun giveaway truck promotion

I first heard the audio in this clip when I was on Hugh Hewitt’s show yesterday, but I didn’t see the video until later in the evening. The obvious discomfort of the CNN host here will make viewers laugh. Mark Muller has no reservations defending his sales promotion that gives away a voucher for an AK-47 with every new pickup truck sold. Instead of defending himself, Muller pushes back against the questioning, using the home-invasion murder of a husband and wife to explain that people need to consider self-defense rather than wait for someone else to rescue them. Muller’s motto seems to get the reporter the most flustered:

Hosts should make sure they have the motto correct before attempting to criticize it, especially to act offended at the juxtaposition of “God” and “guns”. She trots out a weak version of “What would Jesus do?” in an attempt to embarrass Muller, but instead Muller points out that (a) there were no guns in Jesus’ time, and (b) He wouldn’t need one anyway. Muller also exposes his opponent as a rube on religion by quoting Luke 22:36: [Jesus] said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.[“]

Perhaps it’s not such a surprise that Muller could dissect CNN’s interviewer so handily. It turns out that Muller is the older brother of radio personality Mancow, a fact that Hugh discovered in his interview of the car dealer.
