Gun at The Land of Mouse

This is for Wonderful P.R.

I am planning a Trip to the Land of Mouse. It does not bother me that people were carrying there. It's called concealed carry. If it hadn't fallen out of his pocket no one would have known. No the fact that he did not maintain control of his weapon is a problem. This is the type of incident that causes problems for the rest of us.

According to one article the firearm in question was a Cobra .380. I already see a lack in judgement by his choice in carry gear. Based on the choice in firearm I woudn't be surprised to find it not in a holster

Of course the geniuses on our side like R.F. Truth about... are commenting on this with their usual antics.

I am not exactly sure on how Disney's property is posted nor am I sure what the laws are for required posting to prohibit CC on ones property in Florida. That said it is my understanding that if you are asked to leave and do not it is at that point in time it becomes trespass.

For the idiots posting how scared they are. Grow up and open your eyes. To quote one commenter on a news feed "I feel that I am in a Safe Bubble when I am there." You are not feeling is not reality. Reality is no place is a Safe Bubble. The are places that are less dangerous or lower risk than others. But they are not bubbles of protection. For Example Disney -vs- NOLA's 9th ward. One there is a much higher change of violent encounter than the other.

On a different note most of the Building created by the mouse are facades. Deploying a firearm in that environment would be a daunting task as what looks like a reliable backstop or safe direction may not be it may only be a fiberglass skin over steel. I will never tell anyone to leave their personal protective equipment at home. But deploying it in such an environment would be very risky. Make your choices for yourself wisely and remember "Concealed means Concealed" however it is up to you to keep it that way. In a hostile environment an accidental print can cause trouble much less leaving it on the seat.
