Good Firearm News Coming Out Of Anaheim.


ANAHEIM -- Many Disneyland visitors are cheering now that skippers on the Jungle Cruise ride can pack heat again.

For more than 40 years, the mechanical hippos would lunge threateningly out of the water at every boat that toured the park's Amazon River, only to be repelled by skippers firing their sidearms. Then, in 2001, political correctness appeared to accomplish what the hippos never could. The skippers were disarmed.

Now Disneyland has rearmed the skippers. It's one of several actions officials say are aimed at recapturing some of Walt Disney's original vision as the park approaches its 50th birthday next year. (abc7.com)
