Grandma finds gun on seat of Disney World ride, owner pleads ignorance

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 that the woman found the automatic gun on the Dinosaur ride at Animal Kingdom. The woman gave the loaded gun to a park attendant who then contacted her manager and authorities.

The owner of the gun, 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 central Florida park was only so guards could check bags for bombs or explosives.

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

The gun was not an automatic. See: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/l... There is a big difference there. Shame on this report for its inaccuracy. Also, shame on the irresponsible gun owner for making such a mistake. Gun owners must take the utmost care when handling firearms. This gentleman has made the rest of us look bad.
