Guests forget they had their handgun when trying to enter the Magic Kingdom

According to a report released yesterday by the Orange County Sheriff’s office, a 35-year-old man and his 34-year-old wife told Magic Kingdom security they had the unloaded Ruger LCP .380 pistol on them during bag screening around 9 a.m. on Dec. 28th when they were trying to gain entrance to the theme park with their 4-year-old daughter.

The Orlando Sentinel reported that the gun was zipped up in a bag and both guests claim them have a concealed carry permit for Missouri which they live.

The incident report states “They apologized stating they forgot to leave it in the hotel room and asked if they could secure the gun somewhere in the park … They forgot the gun was in the purse when they left to come on the family vacation because they have 18 family members attending the trip and had many bags.”

The couple was not arrested nor were they banned from Disney World, instead, the Orange County Sheriff’s held onto the gun for safekeeping.
