SARASOTA, Fla., Sept. 23 (UPI) — A Florida merchant account provider is offering customers a free AK-47 assault rifle as part of its “No Merchant Victims” campaign.

MerchantService.com said business owners utilizing their services will receive vouchers for AK-47 assault rifles, redeemable at reputable gun shops, as part of its campaign to encourage business owners to protect themselves from violent crime, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.

“Keep in mind we are not simply handing out AK-47 assault rifles to anyone who opens an account with us. Instead, the merchant receives a voucher that can be used at any reputable gun shop where they must go through the proper background checks and waiting period that the law requires,” said Gino Kauzlarich, president of MerchantService.com.
