In case you’re wondering, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has some gift-giving advice: Give them an AR-15.

In a tweet, she wrote: “Innovation found only in the USA! You know, an AR-15 makes a great gift — what more says, “I love you”? Eh, you …” and then she included a link to her new Sportsman Channel show, “Amazing America with Sarah Palin,” airing Thursdays at 8 p.m.

Predictably perhaps, social media took to trouncing her tweet.

Someone with the handle Monkey Bear Dinosaur wrote: “@SarahPalinUSA You are a terrible person.”

Jeff Mandell wrote, The Blaze found: “@SarahPalinUSA you’re a sick, sick woman.”

And Sad day 4u wrote: “@SarahPalinUSA Saying I love you says it better than giving someone an assault weapon you [expletive] psycho.”

Mrs. Palin’s new show website bills her as “the First Lady of the Outdoors” and promotes that she will tell the “stories of an America you may not know. From risk-takers to legacy-makers, trailblazers to lifesavers, see what makes America amazing!”
