Disney World patron finds gun on ride

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) A Walt Disney World patron on a ride with her grandson found a loaded gun on her seat, officials said Wednesday.

Officials said that the woman found the pistol on the Dinosaur ride at Animal Kingdom. The woman turned over the loaded weapon to a park attendant, who then contacted her manager and authorities.

The gun's owner, Angelo Lista, told authorities he discovered his gun was missing several minutes after leaving the ride. He has a concealed weapons permit.

Lista told authorities he didn't know Disney World patrons weren't allowed to bring guns. He said he thought the security checkpoint at the entrance to the Florida theme park was only so that guards could check bags for bombs or explosives. Patrons do not walk through metal detectors nor are they subject to patdowns.

Disney World prohibits patrons from bringing weapons of any kind on its property.

I wondered if I could carry there.

I looked for signs. Didn't see any. I never asked though.

There is disturbing at a few levels. First, if you can't carry there, aren't there signs? And how did they know it was his gun? Did he go and report it missing? Does the park have the ability to trace the ownership?
And the most disturbing.....how in the hell did he lose it?
Irresponsible gun owners are exatly what the liberal gun grabbers exploit to push their agenda......shame on him. He would have been better off locking it in the car if he can't carry and keep it secured.

This is definately not a positive use of firearms.
