Dad! There’s a Four-Point Red-Nosed Buck on the Roof!

“The Scottsdale Gun Club is inviting people to enjoy Santa and Machine Guns. The family event allows people to take a holiday card picture with St. Nick — and a high-powered firearm. Santa poses against a backdrop of an $80,000 Garwood minigun.” [Fox Phoenix, via ThinkProgress]


I sent out a Christmas card one year with me posing with a dead elk I shot while hunting. My closest friends who could appreciate the sickness got the inscription “make that seven tiny reindeer.” My dad thought the card was pretty cool, but his came without the bonus material. The 5 x 5 rack of antlers is hanging on the wall above my desk at home.

Is it just me, or is this the gun-collecting equivalent of furries going to the store in their suits? Admiring the hardware is nice, but SANTA? Srsly?
