A burgundy and gold, Washington Redskins-themed AR-15 popped up at a DC-area gun show over the weekend, and the NFL, unsurprisingly, has begun an investigation into the unauthorized use of the team's logo, spokesman Greg Aiello said.

The gun appeared at the Capitol Gun Show over the weekend, and the league took notice since it doesn't/hasn't/will likely never approve of its teams' logos on firearms.

The same gun, retailing for $2,000, was at one point available at an online gun distributor. The description reads, in part: “Angels will be heard singing ‘Hail to the Redskins' as you feast your eyes on this one-of-a-kind tribute to our nation's capitol home team.” The rest of the description is even more bizarre.

All firearms are strictly forbidden at every NFL facility.
