We’ve shared stories of many billboards that seem to make liberals go bonkers. Isn’t it funny how they’re the first to shout “First Amendment!” and “free speech!” but only if it falls within their agenda?
This latest billboard, which uses First Amendment rights to show support for the Second Amendment is no exception. Liberals all over the city of Chico, Cali. are going absolutely bananas over it.
The hilarious billboard depicts Santa Claus sporting a high-end AR-15 rifle with the message, “We build AR’s for Santa” right next to it. It’s got to be one of the best billboards we’ve seen in a while. (H/T TheBlaze).
This Dec. 20, 2014, still frame from video by KHSL/KNVN-TV shows a billboard showing Santa Claus holding an assault rifle, posted by the Down Range indoor training facility in Chico, Calif. The gun range owners told Action News Now they didn’t intend to make the ad offensive. They said some people give guns as Christmas presents, and they put the ad up along a highway on the outskirts of town to draw attention to their fledgling business. (AP Photo/KHSL/KNVN-TV)
The co-owner of Down Range Indoor Training Center, Steve Dyke, thought the billboard was hilarious and clever – and rightfully so. “We’re right next to the freeway, so we have to do something to catch people’s eye,” he told local reporters.
One liberal who was steaming over the sign said, “The idea of this symbol of joy and giving holding an assault rifle it’s just so contradictory. You almost don’t know what to do with it.”
Another liberal mother told the same reporter, “I just don’t think I would like my son to see Santa holding a gun and having to explain to him that’s usually not what’s Santa’s holding…it’s presents.”
But Dyke had the perfect counter to that statement when he said, “Some people get toys and stuff like that for Christmas,” he told KOVR. “[W]hen I was growing up, I got guns from Santa Claus.”
As Dyke said, it’s all about where you come from and how you grow up. Liberals freak out at the mere sight of a gun and call it “scary” – even if it’s on a billboard canvas.
Anti-gun liberals are usually “scared” of guns based on looks alone and the fact that they’ve never held one or used one before at a target range.
But Dyke said that a majority of the feedback he’s received so far is positive.
One customer, Bob Marshall, said it’s all about First and Second Amendment rights. “I believe in it fully,” Marshall stated.
Dyke told reporters there is no chance it’s coming down – it’s been a huge promotional tool for the store during the holidays.
Apparently, they have some ideas for the Easter Bunny and Cupid down the line, so stay tuned.
