Loaded gun found in seat of Animal Kingdom ride

Posted Wednesday, May 29, 2013 7:13 PM | Contributed by CPJ

A Walt Disney World park guest found a loaded gun in the seat of a ride at the Animal Kingdom that had fallen out of a man's back pocket on Sunday. A grandmother handed a Cobra .380-caliber semiautomatic pistol about noon to a park attendant, who immediately contacted security and the Orange County Sheriff's Office. The owner claimed the firearm — which had five hollow point bullets inside — fell out of his back pocket during the bumpy Dinosaur ride.

Pinocchio - you'd probably get wood rot. Or termites.

I thought of this guy when I read this article.

That article pisses me off in multiple ways.

The technology has not yet been tested on humans, or on humans with real guns. Instead, researchers used computer simulations, and experimented with a mannequin painted with a coat that reflects radar-like human skin.

That whole article is a joke, right?

It did conjure up images for me of them testing on mice and rabbits that were packing heat. "Caught them every time!"

Oh, wonderful. Bunnies packing heat. As if they weren't already dangerous enough.

Personally, I found the whole act of Krause kissing Pinocchio shocking enough in itself. I mean, now he'd take a hose to the Pinocchio and blast him down with industrial-grade disinfectant before getting a signature.

Am I the only one that thinks this thread has gone way off topic on many levels? ;-) I kissed Snow White on the lips when I was 4, and that's just not as cool as LK and his story.

By the way, I agree with everyone that thinks that guy wasn't a responsible gun owner. He should be made to ride Disney transportation for several weeks with all the stinky, smelly people for punishment.
