    Are these politicians so criminally stupid as to not understand their own legislation gave Disney a pass or is it more likely that they will be receiving donations to their campaigns from The Mouse?

    You know just a thought......What does explosives have to do with guns. I mean come on!!!!! What does disney have stockpiles of Tannerite right in wharehouses next to the parking lots!!! Even that doesn't matter because I'm pretty sure ccw holders don't walk around shooting into buildings that may be loaded with explosives.

    SeaWorld Orlando takes an entirely different approach: That company supports the rights of its employees or visitors to transport legal firearms in their cars, "and we have for some time," spokeswoman Becca Bides said.

    Just went to Disney "contact us" on their site and sent them this.....


    Disney, which has 60,000 employees and a long-standing policy against allowing guns on its land, cites an arcane -- and late-added -- loophole in the new law, which took effect Tuesday. You can count on my family and I to NOT be coming to your parks anytime soon with that policy in place!!! I was planning a trip with my wife and three kids but I have decided to take my business to Sea World where they support the 2nd amendment!!Sea World Orlando takes an entirely different approach: That company supports the rights of its employees or visitors to transport legal firearms in their cars, "and we have for some time," spokeswoman Becca Bides said. Your company makes me sick that you have denied people the right to self defense!!

    I know it will not do any good but what the hey!!

    I also voted on the other site like 5 times

    I am afraid ole Walt would simply roll over. But then again that the way that company has been moving for years, so no shock.

    Voted Yes in poll. Current results:

    The NRA is taking aim at Disney. A new law just went on the books in Florida that says people are allowed to bring their guns to work, but it's not the case at Central Florida's largest employer. Do you think Disney employees should be allowed to bring guns to work?

    Often, when you see a law passed with exceptions, there's some sort of sham going on. Usually, it's to protect business interests, and there's usually some type of plausability besides that. I don't really see it in this case, either. Can anyone explain? What did the "lobbyists" say?
