Default Ford Tells Dealership: You Canít Sell F150s, Cars Using Shotguns As Come-On

This week a small Alabama dealership was shut down in its attempt to use shotguns as part of an F150 car sales promotion. Ford's action follows a shooting at a California dealership that left several dead.





It hasnít been a good week for Chatom Fordís ďGod, Glory, and FreedomĒ promotion. A small dealership in rural Alabama, General Manager Colin Ward came up with the promotion to take advantage of the holiday, or so he thought.

Instead, there was a shooting at a California Ford dealership early this week that caused the automaker to tell Chatom to knock it off. The promotion promised anyone who purchased a new Ford F150 or another vehicle a Bible, a new American Flag, and, most controversially of all, a certificate good for $200 towards a shotgun purchase.
