Boise, Idaho – November 13, 2013 – In a surprising move, Idaho gun manufacturer, Intacto Arms, has named anti-gun advocate and CNN talk show host, Piers Morgan their Salesperson of the Year. Morgan, an outspoken critic of private ownership of military style firearms, is a British journalist, television host and former television talent competition judge currently working in the United States.
“We would like to publically thank Piers Morgan and other likeminded anti-gun advocates for their relentless public rants against firearms, and more specifically military style rifles,” said Cooper Kalisek, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Intacto Arms. “Without some gun owners fearing that one day their second amendment rights may be curtailed or even eliminated, we would not have experienced such an explosive surge in demand for our products this year.”
“At Intacto Arms, we believe in giving credit where credit is due,” said Kalisek. “Every year I try to identify the single largest influence on our success, and this year it was very clear. The passionate public hue and cry against firearms of Morgan and other celebrities like him might very well have been the most important factor in our 500% increase in sales from the previous year.”
Intacto Arms is a custom gun manufacturer with only eight employees and a limited marketing budget. “We owe a debt of gratitude to folks like Morgan,” continued Kalisek, “as they have pushed the AR-15 and other military-style weapons into the forefront of media coverage. This has unexpectedly resulted in an urgent call to action for gun owners to purchase our products immediately. No marketing budget, large or small, could have delivered these results.”
According to Kalisek, the Intacto Arms “Salesperson of the Year” Award is a cash award of $1,000 and a custom AR-15. Intacto Arms has notified Morgan through email, Facebook and Twitter that he is the 2013 recipient, but has yet to hear back from Morgan whether he will accept the award in person, as required by federal gun laws.
