SCOTTSDALE, Ariz – An Arizona gun club is putting a new twist on Christmas by inviting families to pose for a photo with Santa Claus and a gun.
The Scottsdale Gun Club is hosting what they call a family event that 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 mini-gun, and families can choose to pose with other firearms. Choices range from pistols to modified AR15s.
They also get a chance to test out the machine guns.
“I thinks 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.
