Default Ford nixing Dealership Shotgun Promo

Looks like Ford is part of the anti-gun crowd.

Ford needs a new trim model...................................

The Snowflake Edition

If they are having shootings at their dealerships then they should give out guns so the customers can shoot their way out if it starts where they are

On the flip side, there are several car "salesmen" that should be shot for some their tactics

Ford is smart here. “IF” something were to happen as a result of this promo, Ford Motor Company will be sued for tens of millions of dollars in punitive damages for their negligence in not stopping a murder weapon given as an incentive to purchase their product. Lawyers go after the deepest pockets every time. This is why Walmart gets sued for hundreds of millions for selling a gas can stupid people are lighting themselves on fire with instead of the can manufacture.

Ford would offer to settle this for $10 million dollars just to make it go away. Lawyers know this.

I agree Ford corporation needed to do this. The liability is off the charts.

Same reason we quit raffling off shotguns as a fund raiser for our bass club years ago.
It's a part of the collateral damage we've taken due to circumstances.

Makes sense to me. My business I own sponsors a kayak tournament trail locally. We had discussed furnishing beer for the last tourney but then as we started really talking there is no way I could do that and not be held liable if someone wrecked their truck or killed someone else on the way home. Iíd get sued and my business would be done. Iíd say the same concept applies here. I say good on Ford for not wanting to be liable for one dealers decisions.

I know it's a tough thing to understand but just because anyone does something that we dont like that has to do with firearms doesnt mean that they are "anti gun"

Wait! what if somebody drowns during your kayak tournament? You might want to check into an umbrella policy.

True story, but hopefully you have signed waivers and acknowledgements from each club member. Still doesnít prevent you from being sued. Remember there doesnít have to be a good reason to get served with a lawsuit, even if itís frivolous.

Also true, except that liability insurance has an alcohol exclusion. There is an endorsement, and usually it doesnít cost anything to add called a Host Liquor Liability endorsement to cover this very thing. Your insurance company has a duty to defend you from being sued for your wrong doings. (Negligence).

If you werenít a sponsor the tournament wouldnít have happened. No reason the sponsors shouldnít be sued as well.

i do not see liability for the Ford DEALER.
The dealer gives his customer a coupon that's valid at a local gun store. The gun shop then processes the sale just like he does any other gun sale by completing the 4473 form and background check........

The Ford dealership did not give their customer a shotgun, the gun shop gave the shotgun to them.

Naaa, itíd still go on. Just with a lot less cool chit to give away lol. Either way we donít serve alcohol at it. Ford did the right thing here even though that was a cool azz promotion. It really is too bad we canít do stuff like this anymore without worrying about getting sued.

It's too bad we can't do this stuff without worrying about some jack wagon killing innocent people with the gun he/she was given. Sad times.

Yea, actually the dealership isn't giving you anything. I have a sneaky suspicion that they are adding the cost of the promotional items to the amount you pay for your vehicle. Kinda like that zero percent financing that everybody crows about. Those automobile dealers are really some nice people always giving things away for free and still selling everyone a vehicle for less than dealer cost.
