According to a report from WFTV, Andrew Gerson a lawyer from Miami attempted to sneak a gun by Disney World Security Guards on his way into the Magic Kingdom last Friday afternoon. He was questioned by Disney Security about a bulge on his person which was actually a snub nose revolver with hollow tip bullets. Promptly an Orange Country Sheriff’s deputy was notified and Gerson was immediately detained.

“He did the right thing,” said Orange County Capt. Angelo Nieves. “He offered the commands, and the subject did obey and surrendered to the deputy.”

Gerson claimed he had a conceal carry permit but upon investigation deputies stated the permit expired 10 years ago.

“We immediately engaged law enforcement and the matter was resolved quickly and without incident,” a Walt Disney World representative said. “Our policies are clear, and we have zero tolerance for any violation of them.”

Andrew Gerson was charged with illegally carrying a concealed weapon and bonded out of jail.
