Chevy driver rebuts Gingrich, shows ‘you can' fit gun rack in a Volt

GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gringrich made a bold claim during a Monday campaign rally in Georgia, while mocking President Obama's plan to provide subsidies for plug-in electric cars.

"Here's my point to folks," Gingrich said to supporters. "You can't put a gun rack in a Volt."


But one Chevy Volt driver took up the former House Speaker's statement as a challenge, posting a YouTube video of his black Volt equipped with a homemade gun rack in the trunk.

"Newt decided to make another statement where he said you couldn't put a gun rack in a Volt," YouTube user "jtmcdole" said in a video uploaded Tuesday. "I take this to heart because I own a Volt and, as you can see, you can put a gun rack in the back of a Volt."

The video cuts to jtmcdole opening his trunk to reveal a rack complete with three guns sitting in his trunk.

During his campaign stop in Georgia, Gingrich criticized a proposed hike in subsidies from $7,500 to $10,000 on electric cars, poking fun at the initiative.

"It just drives the liberals crazy," Gingrich said amid laughter. "How dare we go out and drive vehicles bigger than their bicycles?"
