Pro-Gun Billboard Featuring Native Americans Draws Lib Outrage
Bury your guns at Wounded Knee.
A new Colorado billboard is drawing ire from committed liberals.
Gun-grabbing leftists are outraged after pro-gun billboard went up in Colorado recently.
A pro-gun billboard that features images of Native Americans is drawing both contempt and support in Colorado.
“Turn in your arms. The government will take care of you,” the sign says.
While the sarcasm is evident, the group behind the message is not.
Lamar Advertising, the company that owns the billboard, told CNN affiliate KUSA that the group who paid for the message wants to remain anonymous.
Regardless, the billboard has outraged some residents in Greeley, about 50 miles north of Denver.
“I think it is insensitive, because even though it is what may have happened in the past, people are still living that. Relatives are still living that,” Kerri Salazar, a Greeley resident and Native American, told KUSA.
“I personally do not own a gun. I don’t feel the need to, but for those that do, that is their right,” Salazar said.
“My hope would be is that they can just take the picture down, leave the saying. … Believe me, I get it.”
But Dudley Brown, executive director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, told CNN he supported the billboard.
