What's stupid about it? It's a billboard targeting potential customers, it's getting the store a ton of attention and it's attracting the customer base that they're targeting.

Very true, However a gun store should refrain from using actual congressmen pictures in their ads. Nothing illegal about it but there are so many nut jobs out there that I would be concerned with the liability of a nut job buying a gun from me and shooting the congressman on my billboard.

I think its bad business but everything is so ridiculous right now, businesses risking their bottom line for political statements every day is just stupid. This trend will continue i guess.

Hope the gun shop owner is rich should one of the 4 decide to sue him for defamation or libel.

No, it's not the truth and yes it is racist. What is wrong with people? The ignorance is stunning.
