Well, that exchange with a fake mall Santa might have been the best thing that could ever have happened to little Michael DeCarlo. DeCarlo was recently caught crying after some "woke" Mall Santa told him he wouldn’t deliver him a Nerf gun. That Santa is a tool, but the mall where this fiasco occurred apologized and gave the little guy a Nerf gun, but one gun isn’t enough. Nope. The National Rifle Association (NRA), one of the nation’s oldest civil rights organizations, decided to make a phone call to the North Pole for DeCarlo. And the real Santa decided to give the little dude a whole arsenal for Christmas (via Fox News):

A mall Santa refused Michael DeCarlo’s request for a Nerf gun for Christmas, so now the National Rifle Association is stepping in to help the 4-year-old expand his toy arsenal.

The gun rights group released a video of Santa delivering a sack of the popular toys to the child’s home in Illinois as part of their “mission to make Michael’s Christmas the best ever.” 

“Mean Santa won’t be happy I have this,” DeCarlo says in the clip before emerging victorious in a Nerf battle with this more generous – and sunglasses-wearing – version of St. Nick.

Earlier this month, DeCarlo had asked a Santa Claus at the Harlem Irving Plaza shopping center in Norridge for a Nerf gun for Christmas – but was promptly denied. That exchange was captured on video taken by his grandmother and was then posted on Facebook and went viral. 

The footage shows the Santa denying DeCarlo’s request, saying, “Nope, no guns.’’

So, a sad story turned into something nice. I still think that anti-gun Santa should be put on the real Santa's naughty list. That would be my Christmas wish, along with the New York Giants winning the NFC East.
