Disney No Longer Selling Toy Guns in Theme Parks

Chip and Co.:

Disney is discontinuing the sales of toy guns of any kind at the theme parks, including bubble guns and Buzz Lightyear toy blasters. All of the gun merchandise is being pulled off the shelves and guests are encouraged to leave their own toy guns at home or not being allowed to gain entry to the park. Lightsabers and swords are still for sale as of right now. No word if they will be pulled later.

It’s being framed as a security measure, but there’s clearly a cultural aspect as well — like the candy cigarettes of my childhood.
