Ron Kennedy, the general manager of the Scottsdale Gun Club in Scottsdale, Arizona says that his “Santa machine gun event” is a “holiday tradition” (video below).
Kennedy told Fox News on Monday that the Scottsdale Gun Club is trying to “add a little holiday spirit into people’s Second Amendment rights” by allowing members to bring their children to take photos with Santa Claus and machine guns, reports MediaMatters.org.
Kennedy said: “We do go all through the safety precautions, remove the firing pins, no fingers on the triggers.... Santa’s been supportive… He likes seeing the families enjoy the shooting sports together.”
