Man tried to enter Magic Kingdom with gun in his backpack, deputies say


LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (WESH) — Walt Disney World security stopped a Daytona man who tried to enter Magic Kingdom with a gun, an arrest report said.

Terry Bruce, 29, told investigators with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office that he forgot the 9 mm handgun was in his backpack, but said he did not have a concealed carry license, according to an arrest report.

The gun was in a holster in a backpack and had two magazines secured to the holster, deputies said.

Bruce was charged with carrying a concealed firearm without a license.

In a written statement he gave to investigators, Bruce said he had been in the process of switching vehicles, which led to confusion over the location of the gun.
