Florida firm offers free AK-47s to new customers

Sweet pygmy Jeebus on toast. Explain to me again please why civilians (or business people) need assault rifles?? Although a gun owner myself, I've never seen the need for average citizens to have rocket launchers, missiles, grenades, military assault weapons, etc., etc.
But Ak-47s as a business perk? What kind of customer is this company trying to attract? And are there alternative perks available, maybe something normal like a food processor, or golf clubs??
(Wouldn't it be ironic if a pissed-off customer later stormed the company's offices and shot the staff with their free AK-47?)

From Marketwatch:
CHICAGO (MarketWatch) -- Retail merchant account provider MerchantService.com will give a voucher good for a free AK-47 assault rifle to new customers, depending on the amount of business they do. The company, which provides credit-card-processing services to businesses, announced the promotion as part of its ""No Merchant Victims" campaign that is designed to "encourage merchants to stand their ground and protect themselves," MerchantService.com said. The voucher, worth up to $750 "can be used at any reputable gun shop where [the user] must go through the proper background checks and waiting period that the law requires," said Gino Kauzlarich, president of Sarasota, Fla.-based MerchantService.com, on the company's website.
