Billboard Featuring Santa Carrying Assault Rifle Causes Controversy: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A billboard featuring Santa Claus carrying an automatic rifle has many parents in Chico upset and demanding it be taken down.


The billboard was put up on the outskirts of town " beyond the city`s ban on such outdoor advertising " by a local gun range.

The sign proclaims: We build ARs (Armalite Rifles) for Santa."


Numbnuts are protesting the billboard depicting Santa Claus carrying an automatic rifle, don`t these morons have a life?

Regardless of your views on gun control, you should appreciate this billboard as a work of art! It`s a wonderful marriage of kitsch, consumerism, and Americans` passion for guns.

The only thing that disturbs me about the billboard are the sunglasses, Santa don`t wear no shades!
