Strawmanning the Opposition?

The caption reads: “The caption for this deeply disturbing photo we found on Facebook says: “Many of you have done the Ice bucket challenge. Let’s see how many of you will do the American Challenge! You have 48 hrs to post a pic of yourself with an American flag, a Bible, and a gun or post on your timeline why you do not accept the American Challenge! Let’s show the world that we are PROUD AMERICANS!”

This seems like an attempt to make all gun owners seem like people fearfully cling to their bibles and guns. The link to the original doesn’t work, so this may be a hoax.
