My far-ranging missionary friend was in Northern Wisconsin a few days ago when he noticed this, um, unique Christmas tree.
The book is John Lott’s much-loved, little-read More Guns, Less Crime. The belted ammunition appears to be 7.62 NATO linked blanks. Probably left over from a National Guard exercise.
No live trees were harmed in the creation of this display. It’s a good, environmentally friendly, responsibly sourced way to celebrate Christmas.

No live trees? I see a lot of long guns with wood stocks under all those garlands.
My first thought, too.
And isn’t that what trees are meant for, anyway, lol?
Those trees are long dead. Uh, from natural causes?
Just plant a couple of trees. You’re good. Your “carbon sin” is forgiven.
Most Christmas trees are already pre-planted stock.
True, at least the ones in Wisconsin & Michigan. It’s a crop….and better for the soil than vegetables. No cultivation and erosion or agent orange spray. Tho, things may change now that marijuana can be a cash crop.
That’s right. I just helped my friend plant 486 trees of different varieties on his farm up in Michigan. First time I used a dibble bar, but it works very well, as long as the ground isn’t concrete hard.
Moist nugget(merry xmass, Ing) makes a hell of a tree trunk.
Those moist nuggets just keep popping up, don’t they.
I see some wood stocks on those there firearms. Sorry to burst the green bubble.
One certainly appears to be an M44 Nagant. I can’t ID the rest.
Norinco beat me to pointing out that all those wood stocks didn’t come from algae.
Pretty cool though. I’d chuckle seeing it IRL.
Well I love it! Merry Christmas!??????
Oh wow, do not let the Moms Demand Action see this, they’ll have attacks.
And that would be a bad thing? 🙂
RIP Mamma Liberty, you certainly are missed… 🙁
Just noticed the dates. I remeber her posting something about health, sad I didn’t notice ahe had passed. Lost a co-worker to cancer this mornong.
Not many of us left here at TTAG that have been around this whole decade.
Bloomie’s new Christmas tree?
I am going to set on of these up now that I see how it is done!
I want one from Santa for next year!
i wish i could do that, its kind of hard to make a tree out of an AR and a pistol 🙁
You can make the Charlie Brown Christmas tree of the gun world!
HA! I Haz A Great Idea! 🙂 🙂
Northern Wisconsin, outstanding place for missionary work. I’ve heard there are tribes there who know nothing of the outside world.
May I clip that photo for next year’s Christmas cards?
Merry Christmas, all!!
It would be nicer if the belts had live ammo feeding into something classy.
Cool. Now I’ve got an idea for next year!
You’ll put your eye out!
It needed little look-alike figurines of our favorite Democrats like….Feinstein, Pelosi, Schumer and so on hanging on the tree by little nooses. They could hang right along side the candy canes and little bubble lights we had back in the 50s and 60s
Why spoil a good tree?
Now I have Lever Guns!
Ho Ho Ho
One thing about the gun-friendly crowd. We sure have a great sense of humor. We can laugh at ourselves and life in general. Something the anti’s don’t understand. (Which is why you can watch re-runs of Fraiser and still laugh-out-loud at all the embarrassing situations of the stuck-up doctor/brothers and all the double entendre. Same with Desi and Lucy.)
LOL at you honkies and your guns.
That’s beautiful, tried to pick one up at Lowe’s but they ran out.
