    Santa has hobbies just like everyone else. Besides, when he takes his reindeer and sleigh to deliver presents to the few Christian children in the middle east, he’ll need a few AR’s and couple of cases of ammo to protect himself and his staff to include deer old Rudolph! You go Santa!!! Never mind the whiney-butt, anti-gun ascairty cats! Too bad they don’t let you drink liquor, wine, egg nog and smoke ciggies on TV like they used to in the old days! These PC people make me SICK!!!
