Florida [USA], Mar. 3 (ANI): In yet another demand for the gun reforms on Friday, as an aftermath to Florida High school shooting ,a billboard at Las Vegas was vandalised to read, "Shoot a school kid only $29,".

The Billboard, which earlier read as "Shoot a .50 caliber only $29", was an advertisement for a local firing range called Battlefield Vegas situated at Las Vegas.

As per CNN, "Battlefield Vegas is owned and operated by veterans which provides outdoor training areas to people".

A group of guerrilla artists, named Indecline, took the responsibility for vandalising the billboard. Its spokesperson said, "It was time for us to address gun reform and to do something louder than an AR-15."

Indecline said to be motivated by the Florida High school shooting that took the lives of 17 people.

Members of the group had used vinyl stickers to alter the original advertising and added a line at the bottom reading, "Defend Lives, Reform Laws."

Billboard company Lamar complied with the authorities and removed the billboard.

Lamar, said it "Immediately removed the billboard at the request of the authorities, and we're cooperating with law enforcement agencies as they investigate further." (ANI)
