A breathless, panicked freak out over a man who brought a rifle and a handgun with him on his vacation to a Disney World hotel, because no one was arrested. The man had a valid concealed weapons permit, and did not violate any laws. Who cares if Disney has a policy that no one can bring weapons on their property? I don’t, and I applaud this man for not caring, either.
The argument that it is private property, so Disney (the property owner) should be able to set the rules is mixing two different standards. I wouldn’t have a problem with this, as long as the property owner is responsible for everything that happens as a result of following their rules, but that isn’t how the law works.
The law says that the property owner isn’t responsible for what criminals do. Therefore, they can prohibit weapons without providing any real security, and if you are murdered, raped, or robbed as a result of being made defenseless, that isn’t Disney’s problem.
I have an issue with that, and I will continue to carry regardless of what property owners think.

If property owners can restrict one right, they can restrict them all – I think their ability to restrict rights should be VERY limited, and they should have to provide equivalent security, as you said.
In Kansas, any place that wants to restrict legal carry has to make sure no one else is carrying – which means metal detectors and armed guards… Liberals threw a fit when that started!
In the area I live, there is either no penalty for carrying where it isn't allowed, or one so small as to be pointless. If I were in Texas, on the other hand – a $10,000 fine and jail time is a bit different!
