NFL Investigating Redskins-Themed AR-15 Rifle

Apr 29, 2014

The National Football League is investigating a Washington Redskins-themed AR-15 rifle that turned up at a gun show near Washington, D.C. over the weekend.

The rifle could be a trademark violation, as the league does not license its trademarks to gun manufacturers, CBS-DC reports.

A Virginia-based gun retailer's product description of the rifle says:

Angels will be heard singing ‘Hail to the Redskins’ in the background as you feast your eyes on this one of a kind tribute to our nation’s capitol home team ... Decked out in burgundy and gold, this weapon system is a must for the Redskin fan that has everything ... As with all of our projects, this firearm is 5.56/.223 made with all American parts by American gunsmiths right here in Virginia.
