CHRISTMAS was good for gun owners in the US even after the Newtown school massacre with gun owners posting photos of themselves on social media with their new "toys".

The trend of showing off guns on social media was noticed by The Verge and reported by

The Atlantic Wire.

Despite widespread horror after the

massacre of schoolchildren in Connecticut and calls for stricter gun laws, Christmas Day was a gun fest for many US citizens who happily posed for photos with their weaponry under the Christmas tree.

Thanks to Instagram we see people standing in front of Christmas trees with their brand new guns. There were also a plethora of pics to be found on Facebook and Twitter.

Firearm sales in the US have sky-rocketed since the Newtown school massacre, as debate over gun control rages and enthusiasts fear certain assault weapons and high-capacity magazines could be banned.

A semi-automatic Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle was used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in which a disturbed local young man shot dead 20 young children, six adults and his mother before taking his own life.

May they all burn in hell?

No really... Is that what we're supposed to think? This story has been milked dry.

The inbreeding is strong with these ones.

The fact that someone would go out and buy a bushmaster after hearing that it was the gun used to slaughter children, is just sick.

This isn't even news, it's just... "Look at these stupid Americans with their guns".

Good piece, news.com.au!

And I bet those losers can't even fire those things properly. Then again you don't need to when you're blowing away a bunch of unarmed civilians.

Hmm, should everyone that owns an assault rifle not be put on a terrorist watch list?

After all, they have the ability to commit mass terror, the same as anyone with a bomb strapped to them. How do we know one of these people isn't a religious extremist, or just a nutball?

Honestly, i wouldn't mind owning a gun like that.

The added security of knowing that you can holdout for awhile in a seige or knowing that you can probably take over your neighborhood is a huge perk.

'Hey, look at my new beamer! '

'Hey, look at my new AK! When the time comes, i'm takin' that new beamer, bud! Hyuk...'
