This Christmas, Pose With Santa And His Machine Guns

“Santa’s back with his bag of goodies,” the Scottsdale Gun Club in Arizona announces on its website. Instead of toy soldiers, Santa’s carrying real machine guns, and for $10, non-members can get a picture taken with Santa and his hardware.Brooke Rodda, a spokeswoman for the club, told MSNBC that “It’s been really fun” and the club has “had a tremendous response from the community.”

According to Rodda, about 100 people showed up for the first photo op, where about $170,000 worth of firearms are on display, and more are expected at the Dec. 10 shoot. And it’s not just for gun-lovers, she said. “It has a broader appeal from families to older people,” Rodda said.

Scottsdale Gun Club did not immediately return TPM’s request for further comment.
