    I think this calls for more training in being a "responsible gun owner". People like this give us all a black eye in the minds of the uninformed public, and the anti gun sheep. Not good.

    He should lose his permit for this. What a clown - giving permit holders and gun owners a bad name.

    No telling how the gun got off his person onto the seat. Could easily have come loose from his holstered spot. If so, that's negligence in having insufficient equipment/concealment. Could easily have been that he set it aside during the ride and lost his mind. If so, that's negligence in having lost control of his weapon.

    Though, it's FLA. Nicely, the next person wasn't insane and knew how to handle such a situation. No children toast because of it. (Though, it could have resulted in harms to others, if the wrong person had gotten hold of it.)

    Sux to be him, right now. Hard to explain that away, irrespective of Disney's wishes on the subject of the 2A.

    Disagree, though, that he should be sent through any wringer, loss of carrying, loss of rights, etc. It's a mistake, one in which nobody was harmed (or even traumatized). Stupid, yes. Inexcusable, yes. Worthy of correction/improvement, yes. But, worthy of never carrying again? Not hardly, IMO. It's a RIGHT, after all. Even in our liberty-hatred political situation we find ourselves in, stupidity is not a crime.

    Fox news reported on the 10 o:clock edition that the gun was a three hundred and eighty millimeter pistol and the owner could be charged with a felony. Thats what I call accurate reporting.

    Dude, I'd be like, "score! Free gun!" The former owner pays for his carelessness, no bad press for carry, and in value it would probably almost be even to the cost of going to Disney World. Almost.

    Of course, with my luck I'd get randomly frisked and it would turn out to be the murder weapon from some drug trade quintuple-homicide...

    I want to know where I can get a 380mm pistol! That's a one-shot stop right there.

    12.7mm was once used to stop tanks. The 88's did well against T-34's in WWII. 380mm is nearly the size of Big Mo's full guns. Suffice to say it's not exactly a man-portable thingy. One-shot stop, indeed.

    Hey, Floridians, as a CHL carrier, can you carry a handgun into an amusement park in Florida ? Not so in Texas unless its changed.

    No doubt. If my math still works, that would be roughly the diameter of a family-size pizza. At that point I think the debate over permanent vs temporary wound cavity would become mostly academic.

    Oops, CCW lost and found at Disney World

    Oopsy

    I bet that was a heart sinking feeling for the gun oner. You notice your gun is missing and it's somewhere in a huge theme park with children everywhere.

    We go to Disney World every year (in fact we're leaving for Disney this Friday morning), but I've never even considered bringing a weapon into Disney.

    ((I hope this wasn't posted somewhere else in the forum. I did a quick search, but came up with nothing.))

    A loaded gun at Disney World was found by an Animal Kingdom guest.

    As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Disneyland explosion did not involve loaded guns or any other weaponry. The Disneyland explosion was caused by dry ice in a trash can and no one was hurt.


    The loaded gun at Disney World potentially could have hurt someone. Around noon a woman approached a Disney employee and handed her a loaded gun. The loaded gun was found at Animal Kingdom on the seat of the Dinosaurs ride by a grandmother accompanied by a young boy.

    Disney security and Orlando deputies unloaded the Cobra .380 automatic pistol, which had a fully loaded clip of five hollow point bullets.

    Angelo Lista, 44, of Royal Palm Beach said the loaded gun “just slipped out” of his back pocket “as a result of the ride being extremely bumpy.” Upon realizing his loaded gun was missing Lista went to Disney security to find the missing pistol.

    Lista has a valid concealed weapons permit and went through the security bag check with the gun in his pocket. Lista supposedly did not realize guns, loaded or otherwise, were not allowed in Disney World theme parks. The Disney World no guns rule is posted on their website but apparently there are no posted signs at the gate.

    A loaded gun at Disney World is being called a “rare” event by Disney officials. Disney asked the gun owner to leave their parks but did not charge him with anything. Police deputies escorted Lista to his car.

    There was a case here a couple of years ago where a guy used a Sig 226 in a drug related murder, gave it to his homie to get rid of, homie didn't want to dump a $1000 gun and kept it. Some time later, he was caught carrying it (illegally), it had been matched to the previous murder since then as well. He was charged with the murder, which he wasn't actually guilty of, and ended up being forced to snitch his way out of a false murder conviction...oops!

    So there are "apparently" no physical signs posted, FL is a signs don't carry weight of law state anyway.

    Disney didn't charge the guy with anything - how could they? What a pointless statement.

    As to Mr. Lista's gun control capability - that needs some work.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    I D I O T ! Geez............................ The guy should be very embarrassed! And then flogged by a bunch of gun owners for making the rest of us look like idiots! He is lucky the theme park guest who found it, just did not pocket it.

    Geez............. but then I repeat myself................
