First off, let me point out that I'm Native American and I think it's ridiculous for any Native American to pretend this billboard is offensive to
them. What they should really admit is that they are pro-gun control and this billboard has nothing to do with their being offended as a Native
American. This billboard puts it all into perspective really. It simply points out the plight of the Native American after signing peace treaties with
the government...poverty, dependence, alcoholism. The U.S. Government said, "Give up your guns, we'll take care of you," with promised welfare, health
care, education, a reservation home land, housing, etc... Bottom line...Reservations have become small pockets of socialism within one of the
strongest democratic nations in the world, well, what used to be strong democracy. And we all know how far along the socialist nations of the world
But Irene Vernon, a Colorado State University professor and chairwoman of the ethnic studies department, told the Associated Press that the plight
of Native Americans history with the U.S. is much more complicated than whether or not American Indians were armed.
This billboard is only in Greeley, CO, and a local professor/Native American, who heads the Ethics department at a local university came out
complaining that it is offensive to her Native American heritage. How? Obviously, this professor is a liberal anti-gun Obama supporter who would
rather see the guns taken away. She was only upset because the billboard speaks volumes of truth...
I think many Native's probably agree with me here whether they are Obama supporting democrats (which nearly 100% of Native Americans are, well, on the
Reservations in my neck of the woods anyways) or a gun-toting conservatives.
"I am a Navajo Indian and I am not offended by the billboard. The billboard merely points out broken promises by the U.S. government," said one
I personally agree with this billboard...DON'T GIVE UP YOUR GUNS AMERICA! THE GOVERNMENT CAN'T TAKE CARE OF YOU, ONLY YOU CAN TAKE CARE OF YOU!
