Tanner In The Morning

Weekdays 5:00AM - 10:00AM

This is crazy. It is also very scary.

A Disney World visitor who was caught with an AR-15 rifle and a 9 mm handgun says he only brought them along to keep his family safe.

The weapons were discovered in a tennis bag when the unidentified 43-year-old was checking into the Polynesian Village Resort over Labor Day weekend.

The man also had 60 rounds of rifle ammo and 20 rounds of handgun ammo. When deputies asked why he came to “the happiest place on Earth” loaded to the teeth, the man reportedly told them he wanted to protect his family.

Because the man had a concealed weapon permit, he wasn’t arrested; however, he and his disappointed family were escorted off Disney property.
