    Question Photo With SANTA????

    Forget Rudolph: Get your photo taken with Santa — and a grenade launcher

    PHOENIX—An Arizona gun club is offering a chance for children and their families to pose for photos with Santa while holding pistols and military-style rifles.

    One image shows Santa in a wingback chair with a snowflake background, a Christmas tree behind him and flanked by an $80,000 machine-gun and a tripod-mounted rifle.

    Next to Santa is a man standing behind a boy, who is holding an unloaded AR-15 with an attached grenade launcher.

    Ron Kennedy, general manager of the Scottsdale Gun Club, says the business got the idea for the photo op last year when a club member happened to come in dressed as Santa and other members wanted their picture taken while they were holding their guns.

    He says people have used the photos for Christmas cards and Facebook posts.

    Not exactly related, but close enough.... This is a photo of a "Gate Guardian" at a local Canadian gun range, here in Ontario. I DID NOT take this photo.

    I'm sure a lawsuit is just days away with parents claiming that thier little totts are now traumatized about the thought of Santa owning high-powered weapons.
