No more CC at big theme parks in Florida and California
« on: December 17, 2015, 10:36:19 AM »
I don't know how many people there are in CA that would be legally carrying guns in to Disney and Universal but I bet there were plenty going to the parks in Florida.

Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld in Orlando and Disneyland and Universal Studios in Hollywood are installing metal detectors at the gates.

In a sign of how jittery the nation has become about terrorism and gun violence, all three major Orlando theme parks on Thursday installed metal detectors at the front of their attractions.

Walt Disney World would not say how long its metal detectors would be in place. SeaWorld said it had installed the devices as part of enhanced security for the holidays. Universal Orlando said it was testing using them as guests approach the theme parks.

The changes extend outside Orlando. Disneyland and Universal Studios in Hollywood are also installing the detectors.

Security in general has been a big concern following recent attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif. On Wednesday, the federal Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin saying it was "especially concerned that terrorist-inspired individuals and homegrown violent extremists may be encouraged or inspired to target public events or places." It said the public should expect to see more police and more stringent security at public places and events.

Disney World where a man was arrested last weekend after trying to enter the Magic Kingdom with a gun is now discontinuing the sale of toy guns. It is also banning people 14 and older from wearing costumes even at Halloween parties. More deputies and security guards have been visible at the resort lately, and specially trained dogs have been patrolling key areas. The movie theater at Disney Springs where tonight's high profile premiere of the new "Star Wars" movie takes place will also have at least one metal detector.

This is why I have not been to one of these since I was 13 and when we got back(From "World"in Fla. )my Guitarsand Radio gear were stolenDad was a Fed. Even in the early 70's, living in a big city, the Guns were locked up...)
Early in my teaching career we took the Summer school students to Hershey Pk. On 3 AC coach busses. One was broken into( not mine) and while I was not carrying that day, I had other self defense items with me that I wouldn't wanted to have robbed, so from that point on, I made it a point not to put myself in a position to go to places like that...
