Stand Your Ground: Artist Paints Mural of American Standing up for Gun Rights

mcnaughtonArtist Jon McNaughton is standing up for gun rights in his latest painting.

Titled “Stand Your Ground” – a controversial law brought into the limelight when George Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. – his work depicts a man dressed in soldier fatigues holding both an assault rifle and an American flag.

“America is about freedom. We believe in strong families, patriotism, God, and justice. We won’t bother you if you don’t bother us . . . well, that’s the way it should be,” McNaughton stated about the piece.

McNaughton – who previously painted President Barack Obamatrampling the Constitution and burning it – wanted to show why gun ownership is important in this country.
