I love my Washington Times Marketing Showcase email membership. It’s an endless source of entertainment. Just before I left work yesterday I got this amazing email:
Millionaire Patriot Wants YOU Armed and Trained…
Yup, that’s right boyz and girlz!
FREE GUNS FOR TEABAGGERS!!!
Now comes Dr. Ignatius Piazza, Founder and Director, Four Weapons Combat Master. And he’s so freakin’ rich and so freakin’ patriotic that he wants YOU to have a free gun!
Here’s the full email (click image for the Full Monty):
Trip on over to his website and, well, let’s just say it’s a trip alright. Kinda like a bad acid trip, actually.
Here are a couple of choice quotes from the website:
My hundreds of thousands of students call me the “Millionaire Patriot” because for the last 12 years I have continually provided millions of dollars in amazing benefits to encourage every law abiding citizen in America to secure the Comfort of Skill at Arms for the protection of themselves, their families, and their communities.
You see, I believe that we can positively change the image of gun ownership in our lifetimes and protect our great country from all enemies– foreign and domestic– by training our law abiding citizens to levels that far exceed law enforcement and military standards and we can do it without any boot camp mentality or drill instructor attitudes.
What the Founding Fathers had in mind: LET EVERY MAN BE ARMED.
“Now is the time you and your family need to be armed and trained to levels that exceed law enforcement and military standards!”
- You get a t-shirt!
- You get a HAT!!!
- You get a knife!
- You get training to get your 30-state gun permit!
- You get manuals!
- You get a holster!
- You get a belt!
- You get a magazine pouch!
- You get a flashlight!
- You get a freakin’ flashlight holder! (Dude! A flashlight holder!)
But that’s not all, kidz. Uh-uh. You get all that AND you get a FREE GUN!
If you show me you are aligned with my efforts to positively change the image of gun ownership in our lifetimes by subscribing to my Free Gun Training Reports, ordering my Free Front Sight DVD, and taking advantage of my Greatest Course Offer Ever, then I will give you a FREE Handgun!
Your Choice of a brand new, in-the-box, Springfield XD Pistol in 9mm, or .40SW or .45 ACP
This isn’t the first time Dr. Piazza has given away guns either. From his Wikipedia page:
Piazza does not agree that the message of gun ownership should be watered down by claiming that guns are only for hunting, a claim to which anti-gun activists may respond by asking why someone needs an AK-47 to shoot a deer; he believes that the simple and honest message that firearm ownership is protected by the 2nd Amendment is enough.
In November 2009, in response to the Fort Hood shooting, Piazza gave away 500 AK-47s. One to each person who purchase of a $995 Front Sight Lifetime Membership.
Man. Is this a great country or what? Where else can you take a group of deluded and angry people, fire them up with rage against their government and then convert that anger and rage into pure wealth for yourself with the promise of free guns?
By the way, that “Dr.” in front of his name? It’s because he was once a chiropractor.
Also, too: he’s a Scientologist.
He’s also got a history of scamming folks.
Scamming teabaggers for fun and profit. Couldn’t happen to a nicer group I’d say.
I’m just sayin’…
