Gun club billboard mocking NFL anthem protests hit with fierce criticism

A South Jersey gun club’s billboard depicting a kneeling person aiming a rifle with the slogan “The only time we take a knee” has drawn criticism for mocking the ongoing national anthem protests involving NFL players.

A driver tweeted a picture of the South Jersey Shooting Club billboard Monday and a debate on social media ensued along with calls to have the advertisement removed. 

“Tell them this billboard is racist,” MoNeke Ragsdale said on Twitter. “Taking a knee is a protest to say NO to police brutality.”

Ragsdale, a member of South Jersey Women for Progressive Change, urged people to call the club and demand the sign be removed.
