Native Americans incensed over pro-gun

• Fox News

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

The billboards in this northern Colorado city show three men dressed in traditional Native American attire and the words "Turn in your arms. The government will take care of you."

Matt Wells, an account executive with Lamar Advertising in Denver, said Monday that a group of local residents purchased the space.

"They have asked to remain anonymous," he said.

He also refused to disclose the cost but said the billboards are only appearing in the Greeley area. Wells said he has not received any complaints so far.

"Some...residents were offended." I find it offensive that "some" want to protect govt. from accountability by removing the strongest limit on its power: an armed citizen. I fine it offensive that anyone thinks they can "get offended" when reminded of the fatal consequences of trusting govt. to protect. Delusional cowards are an embarrassment to our species.

Since the sponsors of that ad remain anonymous, how do the complainers know that the ad wasn't sponsored by Native Americans themselves?
