NRA urges Americans to wrap guns for under the tree this Christmas

Gun group gives followers a ‘pro-tip’ on how to get weapon if spouse is against it

The National Rifle Association has urged Americans to wraps guns for under the tree this Christmas.

The gun rights advocacy group posted a picture of a sparkling handgun in a festive gift box to its Twitter account.

And it gave its 895,000 followers a seemingly tongue-in-cheek “pro-tip” on how to get a weapon this Christmas if their husband, wife or partner is against the idea.

“Buy the gun you want. Wrap it and mark it from Santa. Your spouse will have to along with it or they’ll ruin Christmas for the kids,” they tweeted.

Social media users were quick to attack the group for the advert.

Tweet referenced in the article: “Can you find *one* reputable gun safety expert who thinks a box with a handgun and some loose bullets in a gift-wrapped box under the Christmas tree, placed amongst gifts that are presumably toys for Santa-believing aged children, is responsible gun ownership? Just one?” tweeted a user called WellRegulatedMilitia."

The NRA, like their benefactor and "Second Amendment solution" promoter Trumpty Bumpty, sees only profits at the expense of American's lives and well-being.

2. That leads to a thorny philosophical question

Should you shoot your family before you buy them presents to save money or buy them the presents to make them feel less bad about getting shot?
