Wanna Shoot Machine Guns With the Guy Who Claims He Killed Osama bin Laden?
A conservative group in Wyoming is offering a once in a lifetime opportunity. For the low low price of $50,000, you can spend a few days firing weapons with the Navy SEAL who claims to have killed Osama bin Laden. The event’s been aptly titled “machine gun fun.”
In the years following the 9/11 attacks, a number of major US companies were criticized for capitalizing on the tragedy for their own gains. AT&T ran an ad which showed the memorial beams of light – representing the Twin Towers – emblazoned across an iPhone. Reebok designed commemorative sneakers. One company even manufactured “Never Forget” cribbage boards which it sold for $115 each.
But the event organized by conservative group ForAmerica is taking this concept to a whole new level. For $50,000, members can spend “a historic weekend honoring Navy SEAL hero Rob O’Neill,” the man who claims to have delivered the fatal bullet to Osama bin Laden
