Man Shows Gratitude for 400 U.S. Troops at Airport by Buying Them All Dinner

A billboard featuring a gun-toting Santa is stirring up controversy in Charlotte, NC.

The billboard put up by a shooting range and retailer shows Santa aiming a military-style weapon, with the words "Santa knows what you really want."

Some people say it doesn't show Jolly Old Saint Nick being merry and bright, and could send the wrong message to kids.

The store told WCNC that it thought their customers would find the ad amusing.

Do you think the billboard is appropriate and in keeping with the spirit of Christmas? Let us know in our comments!
