A Colorado Sheriff’s Office is getting plenty of backlash online after it posted a photo of Santa Claus applying for a conceal and carry permit.
The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said it made the post to highlight the work of its staff in the conceal & carry Department and wanted to make it festive since it’s December.
The comments that followed the post were decidedly against the intent the Sheriff’s Office may have been going for.
Most described it as insensitive and ill-timed seeing as the Oxford, Michigan High School shooting happened earlier in the week.
So the dude coming through the Chimney to give presents to your kids will be carrying a concealed handgun? Got it!— Russell Schwartz (@russellschwartz) December 3, 2021
