Free guns for romantics

Buy a $2,500 diamond and receive a free rifle from D. Geller and Son of Cobb County, Ga.,: "A lot of our customers are hunters, and it just seemed like a great thing to do." [WSBT]


  1. Upon reading the headline and seeing the jewelry stores sign (must have cost at least $.50), the first thought that popped into my mind: “they let you hunt with Hi-Points in Georgia?”

    Seriously though this is just a gimmick.  If the diamond buyer can legally own a gun, then he/she is really just getting a directed rebate/discount.  Its not like the jewelry store is handing out guns.

  2. There have been many “buy X and get a firearm” promotions in the US. Because the media are reliable and will stretch your promotional dollars exponentially if you do it. 

  3. When I’m with a pistol, I sparkle like a crystal,

    Yes I shine like the morning sun;

    But I lose all my luster when with a bronco buster –

    Oh, you can’t get a man with a gun.

  4. Ironically, since the govt-hating red state of Georgia is barter country, the only “currency” accepted for this offer is a $2,600-value diamond.
