The Film Red Dawn Features Teens Taking Back Their Invaded Town

— November 21, 2012 — Unique
The remake of the 1984 film Red Dawn has been released into theatres this week. The film follows a group of teenagers trying to take back their town after North Korean soldiers invade the United States of America. The film features headliners like Transfromers' Isabel Lucas, The Averngers' Chris Hemsworth and The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson.

In light of the military-infused film Red Dawn, this articles compiles amazing gun-inspired creations. From Pistol-Handled Teapots to Faux Artistic Weaponry, guns have become a blank canvas for interesting creations. The toy guns have reached from the gamer world to bathrooms to the kitchen. There is a purposed toy gun for every area of one's life. However with the implication of harmless guns into society, this desensitizes the stigma around its actual features.
