Controversial Pro-Gun Billboards Depicting Native Americans are No More
Indian Country Today
The two billboards that appeared along highways in Greeley, Colorado in April depicting three American Indians with a pro-gun message of “Turn in your arms, the government will take care of you,” are no longer.
The anonymous residents who purchased the billboards through Lamar Advertising did not renew their lease and the area is now blank space according to an article in at GreeleyTribune.com.
The two billboards – one on the northbound side of U.S. 85 near 18th Street, and the other on the westbound side of U.S. 34 near 95th Avenue – created quite a stir in the community with those opposed using statements along the lines of “it is insensitive,” while supporters were wondering “where can we send a check to support more?” (Related story: Native Americans on Pro-Gun Billboards Create Controversy)
