( — One U.S. Navy veteran's north Alabama business is celebrating Independence Day with an unusual special: a free AR-15 with every new roof. Yes, it's legal.

Digital Roofing Innovations is making quite a splash with its early marketing campaigns. The Decatur-based business has only been around about a year. A July 4 ad promoting the special on Facebook had been shared more than 400 times in its first six hours online.

"Donald Trump says make America great again. I say make America gun again. MAGA!" Owner Zach Blenkinsopp says in the ad, shirtless, wearing cowboy boots, an American flag hat and short star-patterned shorts while holding an AR15. "Some of you might be sitting there saying, 'Man, this sounds like a gimmick.' A gimmick you say? Well I'm a gosh darn Navy veteran, active duty eight and a half years. My roofing company's not a gimmick and this baby's not either. It's here to protect you and your family."
