It wouldn't be the holiday season if conservatives were not, once again, accusing President Obama of waging a 'war on Christmas.' But this year, it's gun rights advocates who are offering the most twisted take on a Christmas tradition. Fox 5 News in Phoenix reports that the Scottsdale Gun Club is inviting people to enjoy 'Santa and Machine Guns' -- a 'family event' that lets kids take a holiday card picture with St. Nick and an assortment of high-powered fire arms.
