Ron Lake calls his Christmas decorations art, but others describe the scene as offensive. Neighbors and others who pass by the Nipomo home have done a double-take when they see a statue of Jesus holding a double barrelled shotgun that's pointed at a dead Santa. There's also a stuffed Rudolph laying on top of the hood of a pick-up truck.
The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department says, while they have received complaints, there is nothing they can do because Lake is not breaking the law. Lake, who is house-sitting at the residence, says he created the display because Christmas has become too commercialized. He hopes parents explain to kids the religious significance of Christmas, instead of just focusing on presents.
