    Have any of you seen the new billboards out that state- turn in your arms, the government will take care of you.? Very interesting with a backdrop of Native Americans pictured. I'll try and get a picture tomorrow and post it up.

    The one I was referring to is basically like the bottom one. I have seen 2 of them in the Greeley area. I don't know who is behind the signs but I will give them a thumbs up.

    Saw the Native American one today on 85 north in Greeley / Evans. I want to know who paid for these so I can contribute to their fund. RMGO?

    I haven't seen anything in my RMGO email or on their website that talks about the billboards.

    Channel 4 News is running a piece on these billboards and who is behind them tonight at 10.

    Looks like Colorado just can't get
    enough of the spotlight now. We
    are either pluggin' our glass pipes,
    our buddy in the tailpipe , or our gun
    laws , now this .


    http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/30/us/colorado-gun-billboard/index.html?hpt=hp_bn1


    " (CNN) -- A pro-gun billboard that features images of Native Americans is drawing both contempt and support in Colorado.

    "Turn in your arms. The government will take care of you," the sign says.

    While the sarcasm is evident, the group behind the message is not.

    Lamar Advertising, the company that owns the billboard, told CNN affiliate KUSA that the group who paid for the message wants to remain anonymous.

    Regardless, the billboard has outraged some residents in Greeley, about 50 miles north of Denver. "
