A 15 year old was caught with a stolen handgun hidden in his bag at Walt Disney World. He and his mother denied knowing anything about the handgun. It was reported stolen just a month before the discovery. What I can’t believe here is that no arrest or charges were made. For a stolen handgun. Illegally carried concealed.

I am willing to take bets on whether or not the family involved was black.

This is also why I carry- even when at Disney. I can guarantee you that there are a few firearms in the possession of criminals at Disney on any given day.

This is one of the reasons, among many, that I’m against any new gun laws. Enforce the one’s we got, then we can talk.

When working there long ago we DEFINITELY were not to call LEOs. And don’t think we didn’t have crime occurring in the hotels. Dialing 911 from any phone, be it guest room or an office, did not reach law enforcement or any form of governmental emergency services. Instead, it was WDW security. I suppose they assigned themselves governmental status, Reedy Creek and all. There have been requests for drugs at the front desk, sinks/counter tops ripped off the walls, nudes walking across the lobby, assaults, domestic abuse, and generally the assortment of behaviors one sees in the society guests drove or flew in from.

Just asking:
Not knowing the entire circumstance, what are the chances the gun was dropped there by someone else into their bag, when he/she saw they were about to get popped with it because of metal detectors?
Such a thing is not a wild stretch of imagination.

A brief description does not suffice here. Video would, but we’ll never see that, so we’re left to guess with only some of the facts.

Disney security is barely worthy of the name. Never been to the FL version, but going armed in SoCal Disneyland really isn’t that much of a challenge to the diligent. And that’s with Anaheim PD cops standing by 10 feet from the barriers. I can’t imagine FL is much better or harder.

    meh- I have done it tons of times. Disney and Sea World are not difficult. Universal Studios is a bit more difficult. They keep tightening security and buying better stuff. I haven’t tried in more than a year, when I went to Downtown Disney with a J frame in my pocket. I set off the magnetometer, but they still waved me through.
