It wouldn’t be the holiday season if conservatives were not, once again, accusing President Obama of waging a “war on Christmas.” But this year, it’s gun rights advocates who are offering the most twisted take on a Christmas tradition. Fox 5 News in Phoenix reports that the Scottsdale Gun Club is inviting people to enjoy “Santa and Machine Guns” — a “family event” that lets kids take a holiday card picture with St. Nick and an assortment of high-powered fire arms. Families can choose from pistols, modified AR15′s, an $80,000 Garwood minigun and more. More disturbingly, they’re encouraged to test out the machine guns. Video and pictures from the event show that young children often wield weapons larger than they are. Heartwarming!
