    Chico Billboard of gun-toting Santa draws controversy

    The billboard put up on the outskirts of Chico comes with the slogan “We build AR’s for Santa,” and advertises for a gun range that assembles such weapons for sale.

    One resident said juxtaposing a symbol of joy and giving with a weapon is “just so contradictory.” Another woman said she wouldn’t want her son to see Santa holding a gun.

    I suppose the lady would much rather have Santa Claus shown with "traditional" Viking gear and engaged in the mirth of battle?
