Meant to run until July 31, any customer buying a auto during the "God, Guns, and Freedom" special would get a Bible, an American flag, and a certificate redeemable for a shotgun.

The God, Guns and Freedom campaign runs through the month of July.

The video advertising the offer appeared on Chatom Ford's Facebook page June 19.

In order to receive these add-ons, a customer must be 18 years or older, have a valid ID, can legally purchase a vehicle, and must "pass all checks associated with owning a [firearm] in state of residency".

"Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Flowers for being the first to take advantage of our July 4th celebration by purchasing this handsome Jeep and to receive a bible, 12 gauge, and [an] American flag!" the Facebook post read.

"Not only are they gonna get the great deals and service we provide here, they're also gonna get a Bible, and American flag and also a 12-gauge shotgun", Palmer said in the video, which shows the amenities that come with the purchase of a new or used vehicle.

The post shows a dealership employee standing by a flag draped over a Ford F-150.

The items are gifts to customers who purchase a vehicle.

Palmer told Newsweek on Tuesday the promotion isn't meant to make any political statements, nor is their store stocked with guns.

"This is just showing support for our local community", Palmer explains. When someone purchases a vehicle, they get their New King James Version Bible and American flag at the dealership. Instead, you get a certificate, which you can use to buy the shotgun from any partnering certified firearms dealer in the area or in Mississippi.

He also said customers could not drive off the lot with a new gun.

As for the 12-gauge shotgun?

Palmer said the sales team came up with the promo to align with his town's values.
