GREELEY, Colorado -- A billboard promoting gun rights is upsetting people in Colorado.

The sign shows three Native Americans with the words "Turn in your arms. The government will take care of you." Native Americans in the area say it's insensitive.

"My hope would be just take the picture down. Leave the saying. I get it, believe me, I get it," Native American Kerri Salazar said.

The company who owns the billboard says the individuals who paid for the message wish to remain anonymous.
