National Rifle Association criticizes Walt Disney World for gun ban
UPI News Service, 07/03/2008
The National Rifle Association bashed Florida's Walt Disney World for saying the resort was excluded from a law allowing people to take firearms to their jobs.
Disney sent an e-mail to employees informing them the company is exempt from the new law because the resort stocks an extensive supply of fireworks on its grounds, WKMG-TV, Orlando, Fla. reported Thursday.
The e-mail was sent out this week before the law was in place, the report said.
The Internet message told workers Disney is not required to allow employees to store weapons in their vehicles.
"Disney is a prime offender when it comes to firing employees for exercising Second Amendment rights. There has never been any intention to exempt any part of Disney from the new law. We thought you'd like to see such arrogance," the NRA wrote on its Web site.
