As I have reported from time to time here, I regularly carry a gun at the area theme parks, including Disney, Universal, and Sea World. There are many people who claim that I am being paranoid, and that no crime happens at these places. They are wrong, and I will remind you of the posts I made on this subject in:
February 2013 again in January 2011 and again in September of 2007.
The theme parks are a target rich environment for every type of criminal from property criminals like pickpockets, burglars, and shoplifters to violent criminals like armed robbers, pedophiles, rapists, and murderers.

Don’t assume that the theme parks are any safer than anywhere else. Even though there are security officers and cameras everywhere, there is still quite a bit of crime in the parks, and you better believe that the criminals know how to avoid them. Be aware, be armed, be careful.
