Man Ejected from Disney World After Leaving Hollow-Point-Bullet-Loaded Gun on Dinosaur Ride

Posted by Goldy on Wed, May 29, 2013 at 2:44 PM


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.

A young boy said, "My grandma found it in her seat," the report stated.

The owner, Angelo Lista, 44, of Royal Palm Beach claimed the firearm — which had five hollow point bullets inside — fell out of his back pocket during the bumpy Dinosaur ride, according to a Sheriff's Office incident report.

But don't you worry, because Lista had a valid Florida concealed weapons permit, so he was no doubt well trained in what to do when a hollow-point-bullet-loaded handgun falls out of your back pocket on a bumpy Dinosaur ride. That said, Lista did end up paying a heavy price for violating Disney's no gun policy: He was asked to leave. Harsh.
