    Woman Accused of Bringing Loaded Gun Into Disney World

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,316267,00.html

    "There was a little less enchantment in the Magic Kingdom Sunday morning when a 63-year-old Pennsylvania woman was taken into custody for allegedly bringing a loaded semi-automatic into the park.

    Disney World security personnel reportedly discovered a silver handgun on Mary Ann Richardson as she entered the park with other family members, according to the Orange County Sheriffís Office. The .32-caliber Beretta handgun had been loaded with seven live rounds in the magazine, but the chamber was empty, MyFoxOrlando.com reported.

    Richardson claimed she regularly traveled with the gun and forgot she had been carrying it around in her purse. Also found in Richardsonís purse was a pair of scissors and a locked blade knife, authorities said. She was charged with possession of a concealed weapon."

    The article says nothing about a concealed weapons license (FL honors PA permits according to handgunlaw.us).
    Nor, does it say how they discovered it.

    I remember another thread where two employees were terminated for having a firearm in their vehicle parked on Disney's property. In that thread someone commented that there were no signs prohibiting weapons at Disney World.

    Does anyone know if that is in fact true?

    I'm kinda thinkin' there must be signs.

    Cool

    WESH News Orlando is reporting that the gun was found during a routine check(probably at the entrance to the amusement park). It is reported she was arrested and jailed for possession of a concealed handgun.
    Another news account reported there is a $2,000. bond.
    No mention of a CWL.

    ... they always make a big deal about whether or not there is a round in the chamber.

    Not sure of the signs as I've only been there once a while back.
    The employees had CWL's but evidently it was against employment policy if I remember right. Wish I know the outcome of that.
    In this instance it appears the 63? year old lady did not have a CWL.

    Haha seven 'live' rounds...as opposed to 'dead' rounds?

    Yea, at Disney they'll do bag/purse checks before you enter.

    At my CCW class the instructor made a point to say that in FL you aren't supposed to carry concealed in any place where you have to pay admission to enter. There's nothing saying that in the statutes, and he did say movie theaters may be a gray area, but have wondered where that rule of thumb came from, maybe there have been some court cases dealing with that since it's not spelled out clearly. Or could be that pretty much any place you're gonna pay admission to enter is going to be private property that they're just assuming that the property "owner" is automatically going to prohibit any weapons.

    Unless it's a pro sporting event, your instructor is not correct.
    I have yet to see a sign anywhere in FL (not that it would mean anything).
    I've been to 'Mouse Land' several times...they only search your bags, not your person...I have to assume that the woman did not have a CCW permit...we'll see!

    Maybe I'll be educated on updated information, but CC is CC...they can only ask you to leave...IF they see it!

    I was told that in my CCW course too. I don't know where they get that from but it is BS


    No CCW signs in Fla, they are meaningless here. If they somehow find out you are CCW they can ask you to leave and you had better or face armed tresspassing charges.

    They are willfully ignorant about anything and everything about guns, gun carry, gun use... so it doesn't surprise me that they are aghast at the idea of a chambered round.

    If they knew squat, they wouldn't think anything of it.

    Oh dear, assault scissors. Poor reporting -- they appear to have omitted if she had chapstick, or perhaps even tissues. :-s

    I make it a big deal when there ISN'T one in the chamber. An empty chamber only slightly better than carrying a hammer as far as I am concerned.
