Photo: Good Idea? “Gun Lounge” to Open in State Bordering Cartel-Filled Mexico
Like most things in Las Vegas, a new lounge is rather “out there”.
Being billed as the first luxury shooting range and lounge, Machine Guns Vegas is getting ready to open its doors to the gun-loving people living in or traveling through Las Vegas.
MGV says it will provide “the ultimate firearms experience” when it opens its doors in 2012, and will have guns, girls, and “a safe contemporary atmosphere.”
The lounge’s hostesses, also being called “gun girls”, will be certified by the National Rifle Association, and their spokes model will be Jeannie Duff, model and former member of the U.S. Air Force.
Genghis Cohen, MGV’s managing partner, said, “Machine Guns Vegas combines exotic firearms with world-class service and amenities for a safe yet exhilarating experience that’s unique and inviting.”
MGV will also offer customers the opportunity to shoot some of the most famous firearms in the world, including weapons similar to those carried by the members of U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six on their raid of Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan, to World War II-era firearms found in video games like “Call of Duty.”
Possibly the best safety feature of the MGV is the fact that alcohol is not permitted.
While MGV may sound like a lounge built for men, it maintains that packages for both men and women’s nights out will be available.
Also, MGV will have a retail store that will sell designer ladies’ hangbags featuring a built-in concealed carry holster, which can carry the limited-edition firearms you can also purchase in the shop.
While this place may sound like a gun-lover’s dream, one has to wonder how smart of an idea it is to put a gun lounge in a state that borders a country currently embroiled in a war with a number of drug cartels, many of whom have reportedly been buying their firearms from dealers in U.S. border states. And for narco culture, adding guns to a lounge in a border state, the often indulgent lifestyle of the drug cartels’ top leaders may lead to some scary situations should any drug lord visit Sin City.
