What an asshat, IMHO.

Time to take somebody's kids away!

What exactly was she trying to do?  Act Goofy and shoot Mickey?
 
2020-10-30 5:27:53 AM  
She was probably planning on forcing the workers dismantling the "Song of the South" theming on Splash Mountain into putting it all back.

I' would never own a gun or go to to a Disney park, but I understand that it could be a parent's dream to shoot some jerk at Disneyworld.
 
2020-10-30 7:25:21 AM  
So she saw the metal detectors and then decided she couldn't be arsed to go back to her minivan or hotel room to stash the weapon?  Done in by laziness, it seems.

Or the small world ride.

I'd better carry a loaded gun everywhere I go, what with all the rapin and killin they do at Disney.
 
2020-10-30 7:33:23 AM  
I can understand, have you seen the size of the rats at that place?

Some people (Americans) just can't live without a firearm by their side at all times.
Bringing a loaded weapon to a theme park where families are having fun?  Her punishment is riding "It's a Small World" non-stop for the next 5 years.

I went to Disney many years back with my family (I was about 10 years old) when my sister was 4.  She insisted that we go on the Small World ride about 10 times in a row.  By the third time, I was wishing I had a gun.

So while I'm not saying it's right, I understand.
 
2020-10-30 7:40:34 AM  
Deputies said the firearm was a loaded 9mm. The firearm has 10 bullets, including one in the chamber, according to the report. Temple does not have a concealed weapons permit for Florida or Georgia, according to the report.

Journalism fail.  Maybe the 6 year old has a concealed carry.  Article doesn't say.  NRA Preschool offers a CC and a license to own and operate full auto 'sporting devices'.  Parents are encouraged to have their preschoolers check out the Kiddie Karbine Klass

Also, just hide it in the bushes.  Surely there are no kids around the area that might find that loaded gun.

Disney's security is simply top notch. They see, or at least are capable of seeing, everything. They've dealt with it all, too.

My uncle retired from the top brass of the police dept in Anaheim CA & worked with them regularly. Total professionals. Anyone even attempting to commit a crime or pull some stunt at the DL is immediately taken down into their underground tunnel system. People right there next to them would barely notice, and that's exactly how they want it.
 
2020-10-30 7:42:34 AM  
Must be one of them responsible gun owners I keep hearing about.
 
2020-10-30 7:44:13 AM  
When asked why she would give a gun to her 6-year-old, Temple said she asked him to hold it so she get her brother and take it back to the car.

Is that Georgian English or Florida Journalism?

Well, consider you could have been with me when I was about 5, when the small world ride malfunctioned, stranding everyone inside until they got it working again, with their beady little eyes and unnatural smiles grinning at us, singing away for a couple of *hours*. I would probably do target practice in there now if given the chance.

My thoughts as well. Have you SEEN just how big those car parks are?!

Anyhoo, my CSB, about a year and a half ago, I'm with my sons entering an amusement park in Europe, and they have a bag check with police-style guys at the entrance, complete with weapons. I didn't see anything that clearly identifies them as cops though.
Guy who apparently missed his calling in the military is barking orders at us, if we understand English, to step to the table, empty our pockets, etc etc.
We stand there and empty our pockets and I pull out a pocket knife that I've been carrying throughout that Euro trip. It's menacing looking, but the actual blade is small.
He gives me this long form to fill out, complete with details, address, some kind of disclaimer and what not. Full A4.
Tells me I'll get the knife back when I leave.
It's my favorite blade, so I said "you know what, I'll take it to the car." I didn't want to forget it and have to decide whether to drive all the way to and from the park or give it up, and didn't trust my memory, especially after a day in the park.
The guy responds with "No. Fill out the form and I'll give you the knife when you leave."
I replied with "Ok, I decided I'm not going inside. Now what."
Guy kept glaring at me.
Another security/cop guy is watching the scene from a distance and notices the body language but is out of ear shot. He walks up and asks what's going on and I tell him. He replies that he'll give me back my knife but that they'll frisk me upon my return.
I replied with of course I expect them to do that because that is their responsibility and I support it because it keeps me and my boys safe.
First security guy/cop kept fuming as I walked away to the car and walked back with a stone poker face to be frisked.

At least the $5000 fine is cheaper than their Disneyland trip.

I was there for a conference a few years back and my smoke detector started chirping as soon as I got into the room. I called the front desk and they sent a guy. i joked to him that I almost just took it down myself and he said he was happy I didn't because I seemed nice and they would have sent police and kicked me out of the park.

The mouse apparently doesn't Fark around at all.

That's what I thought.  It's a loaded gun, unsecured.  Didtnt even unload it.

Why bring a gun in the first place? If I'm planning a trip to an amusement park and the thought occurs to me that I better remember my gun, I'm probably going to opt to go somewhere else. Unless I'm planning a hunting trip, a "place where I need a gun" isn't high on my family vacation destination list.

Even if it was already in her purse did it never occur there might be security? At Disney Word?

Finally, why ditch it in a planter near the gates? Does she somehow not realize that 1000s of people walk past there daily and that someone will notice? She'd have been smarter throwing it in the trash.

There are people that can't manage to leave their house in the safest and most stable era humanity has ever had unless they have a gun but it's the people who are tired of racist and homophobic jokes who are the snowflakes.

Can attest. We were at Downtown Disney some years ago when someone had a heart attack in a store. Security and cast members immediately, like white corpuscles, surrounded the poor guy so paramedics could work with some space. They all faced outwards, smiling, directing folks away from what was going on. It was professional, efficient, and more than a little creepy.

It's been broken, under repair, or being refreshed the last three times I have been. Kind of a weird flex for my Guardian Angel but I'll take it.

One of my friends is a "Disney family" who go at least once a year. One night he was frantically texting me that a woman fell off of the balcony a few floors above their room (assume fell) and he and his family were walking out about a minute after. He saw the body (badly injured but alive and screaming) but was able to keep the kids away. He said within ten minutes any indication that an ambulance and emergency had taken place were gone and people were basically pretending nothing happened.

She's a Georgia resident, and it reads like she just normally carries the gun in her purse, but *doesn't* have the required CCW permit. Getting CCW in Georgia is not particularly difficult. Yeah, there are the hoops (application, fingerprints, background check, etc.), but Georgia is a "shall issue" state if you pass all that. Also, Georgia and Florida are "reciprocal" on their carry permits, meaning with her Georgia permit, she'd have been otherwise legal in Florida (still can't carry into Disney, though). While Disney would have still kicked her out, she, AFAIK, wouldn't be facing the CCW charge, though just dumping the purse and gun in the bushes should be as serious.

She obviously never goes anywhere without it.
Got to the gates, remembered it, and didn't feel like going all the way back to the car.

Funny you should mention that. I have a friend who is climbing the ladder in security... management, I guess you'd call it, at the biggest player in the local market, and definitely heavily present elsewhere in Eastern Canada. We were talking a couple of weeks back, and we often talk shop. I asked him what the gold standard for private security in public spaces. Without hesitation he said "Disney's".

I've seen ladies with a CCP forget they had it in their purse. I mean have you seen the size of some of these bags? That said she did not have one of these handy CCPs so that's a moot point.
