Machine Gun America: Guns for Kids

New Theme Park Lets Kids Handle Semi-Automatic Guns

Orlando is America’s Theme Park mecca, home to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Epcot and other major attractions that are fun for the whole family, as the saying goes.

On Saturday, a new theme park is opening that not only targets kids, it encourages kids to target zombies, criminals and other make-believe nemeses with real, high-powered machine guns.

Yes, you read that right.

Machine Gun America bills itself as Orlando’s “most thrilling attraction….Whether you’re looking to unleash your inner action star or become a zombie hunter, experience the exhilarating rush of shooting real machine guns and powerful firearms for a thrill unlike any other.”

Machine Gun America is already taking bookings, and lists some of the scenarios into which young people and others will be able to take real firearms, everything from “special ops” to “the walking dread” to “gangster land.”

The Orlando Sentinel went down to Machine Gun America for a sneak peek a few days ago. One of the theme park’s employees demonstrated that they have everything from uzi-style weapons for “gangster” scenarios to World War I weapons for war situations.

Everytown for Gun Safety

Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives. But something is changing. More than 1.5 million mayors, moms, cops, teachers, survivors, gun owners, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Together, we are fighting for the changes that we know will save lives. Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your town.

Our voices were heard!

Columnist Dear Abby corrected her dangerous advice she gave to a New Jersey mother when it came to asking other parents if there are unsecured guns in the home.

Please drop Dear Abby a thank you message today, and always remember: Keep guns locked and unloaded when not in use.

"Under ‘Concealed Carry Reciprocity,’ Congress would gut local public safety laws and turn the weakest state’s laws effectively into nationwide laws, forcing states to allow domestic abusers, people with violent histories, and people who lack even the most basic gun safety training to carry concealed guns in public." - John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety

Last week, columnist Dear Abby advised against asking other parents if there are unsecured guns in the home, saying the question is "off-putting."

Asking about unsecured guns in others' homes can save kids' lives, and no one knows that better than parents like Julvonnia McDowell, whose son, JaJuan, was fatally shot by another teen playing with an unsecured gun.

Add your name to Julvonnia's letter telling Dear Abby to update her dangerous gun safety advice.

A shot doesn't have to be fired for a gun to play a role in violent domestic violence.

“If there are some on the left who have bought into the NRA’s perverse ‘Insurrectionist Idea’ regarding the citizen / state relationship, make your voices heard now. Suggestions that the solution to our political problems can be found at the end of a gun barrel must no longer be might with silence by progressives. It’s time for a robust debate about the civic health of our democracy.”

While GOP Congressman Steve Scalise lies in critical condition after being shot, the Republicans in Congress are one step closer to signing a bill that will make silencers on guns to be more readily available to the public. In Republican terms, this means, "LEAVE NO HITMAN BEHIND"
