Disney

So Florida has a new law that says its citizens are allowed to take firearms to work and keep them in their car. Well Disney World decided that they don't have to follow the law because they have an explosives license (for their fireworks). They said they will fire any employee who brings a gun onto their grounds (this extends to virtually all of their property, not just Disney World). They keep talking about the safety of their employees but this guy brought up a really good point.

Good for him, but I worry that he's doing this for his 5 minutes of fame.

I thought the same thing whenever I read it. He obviously doesn't need the job because he had no problem with the paper printing his name. I just like what he said about Disney being safe but Orlando not being safe. All Disney talks about is the safety of their employees but they don't care about what happens to them before they get to work or after they pull out of the parking lot.

The issue isn't needing a gun INSIDE Disneyland. It's about your right to
self-defense enroute from your home to your place of work, and back again.
Disney will FIRE any employee who leaves their firearm locked up inside their
vehicle in the parking lot!

This has already happened in Oklahoma at the Weyerhouser facility in
Idabel, OK. Our state legistature remedied the situation, then Conoco-Philips filed a lawsuit staying implementation of the law forbidding such actions. It's still held up in court.

So if you cherish your freedoms and your God-given right to self-defense, send a message and boycott Disney, Weyerhauser, and Conoco-Phillips.

You can argue "What good will it do". The answer is obvious. Political and financial pressure. The only things these giants care about.

Disney is a safe place. More camera's and plain closed security than DC an that was back in the early 90's when I worked for a small contractor doing business in the park. I cant imagine how elaborate the security is their now.

The issue really is the are surrounding park and Orlando as a whole. Its always been a high crime area but due to the tourism needs almost nothing gets reported. I have a ton of freinds in seminole and orange county and they all tell me how bad crime has gotten.

I remember before I moved to TX in 95 that the rental car companies stopped placing their stickers on cars because tourists in S Florida we being car jacked and robbed. The crooks were using the rental car stickers as a way to find their victims.
