LAS VEGAS (AP) — A guerrilla art collective is claiming credit for changing a freeway-side billboard inviting Las Vegas tourists to fire high-powered assault-style rifles to read, "Shoot A School Kid Only $29."
The altered advertisement, which had said "Shoot a .50 caliber only $29," was taken down Thursday morning and police are now investigating.
A man who said he represented the activist group INDECLINE took credit for the pre-dawn protest. He refused to provide his name in a telephone call with The Associated Press.
He issued a statement from the group that said it changed the sign to spur debate about stricter gun laws.
INDECLINE also took credit for putting statues of a naked Donald Trump in cities around the country in 2016.
