Pro-gun Native American billboard draws criticism

GREELEY — Two Colorado billboards in which images of Native Americans are used to make a gun rights argument are causing a stir with some residents who say the image is offensive and insensitive.

The billboards show three men dressed in traditional Native American attire and the words “Turn in your arms. The government will take care of you.”

According to the Greeley Tribune, a group of local residents purchased the space and asked to remain anonymous.

Greeley resident Kerri Salazar, who is of Native American descent, said she was livid when she learned about it. She said she doesn’t have a problem with the gun rights message, but she’s offended the Native American people were singled out, apparently without their consent.
