“Turn in your arms, the government will take care of you.”

This is the message, displayed alongside traditionally dressed Native Americans, on billboards in Colorado.

The billboards are meant to show what the government in the past did to a particular group of unarmed people.

However, now some in Colorado, are pushing to have the billboards removed.

According to 9News.com,

Greeley resident Maureen Brucker said, “I was disgusted. I was disgusted. You don’t do this. You don’t take something that is indicative of an ethnicity and use it to prove your point. It is just not acceptable. No matter what the ethnicity, no matter what the point, you don’t do it.”

Kerri Salazar, a Greeley resident and Native American, said, “I personally do not own a gun. I don’t feel the need to, but for those that do, that is their right. My hope would be is that they can just take the picture down, leave the saying. You know I get it. Believe me, I get it.”

The group who paid for the billboards is choosing to remain anonymous.
