A thug art collective claims credit for defacing a freeway-side billboard ad for Battlefield Las Vegas gun range. The sign read, “Shoot A .50 Caliber Only $29”, but was changed to read “Shoot A School Kid Only $29”.
The group that is taking credit for protesting guns is INDECLINE. The group released a statement the billboard action was to spur debate about “inadequate gun laws that are currently placing value on assault weapons over that of human life.”
The man said the group provided a video to KTNV-TV showing at least two people wearing dark clothing scaling the billboard and pasting strips on the sign with the words “School Kid” and “Defend Lives Reform Laws.” A person climbing a ladder appeared to be wearing a wool mask.
The billboard was not far from the site of the worst mass shooting in modern American history. The Oct. 1 attack killed 58 people.
The spokesman said the billboard action also took inspiration from the Feb. 14 school shooting that left 17 people dead in Parkland, Florida.
The game of life.
