In what looks like either an epic troll, or the best possible outcome of a publicity campaign, Machine Gun Vegas has convinced the local anti-gun industry in (Formerly Great) Britain to spaz out over their advertising a chance to shoot machine guns on their Las Vegas shooting range.
Machine Gun Vegas is “targeting” the rights deprived Brits in exactly the same way that McDonalds is “targeting” hungry people. Those dastardly businessmen! Who are they to allow people to do something legal and charge for the privilege?
And they evilly used the story of a criminal thrown in jail for owning a machine gun in (Formerly Great) Britain as a way to advertise!
True. It would have cost him less, both in money and in time! I think that this is the perfect sort of advertising. “hey, don’t break the law, bring some cash and your passport and we’ll show you how to do it right and legally!”
So, is the British government in the habit of handing out passports to criminals?
Here’s what’s really going on. They anti-gunners know that guns are fun. They know that if the ordinary Brit gets used to guns, he’ll stop being afraid of them and start asking why his ancestors could own them, but he can’t. He’ll start openly asking his friends and neighbors why it is that he, a law abiding person, is banned from having guns on the grounds of “public safety,” but that same gun control fails to stop the criminals from having all the guns they want.
We all know what happens when people start asking logical questions about gun control. Nothing good for the gun controllers.
And the whole time that this “controversy” is going on, Machine Gun Vegas is laughing all the way to the bank. The idiots in the UK press are giving them tons of free press to advertise their perfectly legal services, encouraging thousands to come who would have never heard of the opportunity otherwise.
