Santa kids machine gun
An Arizona gun club has put a new twist on Christmas by inviting families to pose for a photo with Santa Claus and a high-powered firearm.
Scottsdale Gun Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., will also give customers the chance to test-fire the gun they choose to pose with, myFOXphoenix.com reported.
The pictures are taken against a green screen, with a backdrop added of an $80,000 Garwood minigun.
Families can also chose to pose with additional firearms in hand with choices ranging from pistols to grenade launchers to AK-47s.
“I think it’s going to be all in fun from those who support the second amendment and those who don’t. Whether you’re a gun advocate or not, you should have a lot of fun with it,” said gun club member Richard Jones.
The cost of posing in the photographs will be $10 and this will be the second year that the gun club will be offering shots with Santa and guns. Last year the photographs cost $5.
Pictures from last year’s event show groups of families and friends posing with Santa and carrying guns. Some pictures also include toddlers and elderly individuals.
The next Santa and machine guns event will be held on Dec. 10.
