The photo of the man holding the gun at the Las Vegas Las Vegas Lottery booth is sparking a new round of debate in the United States.
The image, posted on Twitter by a user calling himself “Nanobit,” shows the woman holding a sign with the words “The NRA is a hate group.”
The image has sparked a fierce backlash on social media.
The photo of “the NRA is not a hate or a hate site” the woman is wearing on her shirt is a shirt from the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada, the Las Angeles Times reported.
“It’s very sad and it’s disgusting and it really should be banned,” Lauren Dickson, the ACLU of Nevada’s director of public safety and public health, told ABC News.
“That person is wearing a shirt that has the NRA on it.
Dickson said the woman’s clothing is a sign that the group is a “hate site.”””
If it’s the NRA, it’s not going to be in our stores.”
Dickson said the woman’s clothing is a sign that the group is a “hate site.”
“The NRA and the NRA-ILA are an anti-gun hate group,” she said.
“They have a long history of hate and bigotry.”
In response to the backlash, Las Vegas Police Chief Michael Brown told the Associated Press he is concerned about the woman.
“This is a very unfortunate situation and we need to make sure that the law enforcement officers that are protecting us are trained in the law to understand that and to make it a very clear distinction,” Brown said.
“We’ve got to do our job.
We’re in a very difficult situation, and it is absolutely unacceptable for somebody to wear a gun.”
