RANCHO CORDOVA, CA --Santa Clause is coming to town and he's carrying an AR-15.
A billboard of an armed Santa Clause on Highway 50 in California is getting a lot of attention. The sign shows an employee of Ammo Depot in Rancho Cordova, sporting an AR-15 rifle.
Brandon Lungren, one of the owners of Ammo Depot, says some people are offended by the sign, but he says there's nothing wrong with the billboard.
"There's a lot of people out there that when they see a picture of a firearm or an AR-15, or anything along those lines, they inherently think it's evil. And it's a shame that that happens," said Lungren.
Residents had mixed reactions to the sign that was promoting Black Friday sales.
"Santa has Second Amendment rights, also," said one Californian.
