  1. #1 Disney thumbs nose at Florida's new gun law

    Guest
    Those shits at Disney World managed to buy their way out of the new Florida Law allowing firearms in cars at place of employment. I wonder what they gave the lawmakers in order to get the exemption?

    The new law extempted Disney. They will never get a dime of mine.


    Disney Thumbing Nose At The New Gun Law



    We have received the following memo from numerous sources. It was sent out by Disney to Disney employees. 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.

    and Resorts Vice Presidents; #WDW X Walt Disney Parks and Resorts

    Sent: Fri Jun 27 XXXXXXX 2008

    Subject: Florida's Guns-At-Work Legislation



    Below is a memo regarding the Florida Guns-at-Work law,

    effective July 1, 2008. Please share verbally with your teams, as

    appropriate.





    ************************************************** ******************************************



    To: Florida-site Executives Date: June 27, 2008

    From: Shannon McAleavey,

    Senior Vice President Public Affairs

    Subject: Florida's Guns-at-Work Legislation



    __________________________________________________ ___________________



    On July 1, a new Florida law will go into effect that will allow

    employees with a conceal-and-carry permit to have a weapon in their

    vehicle at their place of employment. This law does not apply to Walt

    Disney World Co. owned and leased properties due to an exemption
    . This

    includes all theme parks, resorts, theme park and resort parking lots,

    Cast Member parking lots, administrative offices across the Walt Disney

    World(r) Resort, Downtown Disney(r), Disney's Wide World of Sports

    Complex, hotels on Hotel Plaza Boulevard, Celebration and the Disney

    Reservation Centers (Orlando and Tampa).



    However, the law will apply to property owned by Reedy Creek

    Improvement District, Disney's Vero Beach Resort, the Disney Cruise Line

    Crew Member parking lot, the La Quinta warehouse on Orange Blossom Trail

    and Disney-owned liquidation stores off property. Because this is a

    Florida law, it also does not apply to Disney's Hilton Head Island

    Resort. Cast Members will continue to be prohibited from removing a

    weapon from their vehicle while at work. All Cast Members must comply

    with the gun policies in effect at the location they are visiting,

    regardless of where they work. For example, Disney's Vero Beach Cast

    Members must comply with the gun policies at a Walt Disney World Co.

    theme park when visiting that location.



    Walt Disney World Co. continues to maintain a zero tolerance

    policy for guns and workplace violence. Possession of dangerous or

    unauthorized materials such as explosives, firearms, ammunition, weapons

    or other similar items on Walt Disney World Co. owned or leased property

    is grounds for termination (as outlined in the Employee Policy Manual).



    A lawsuit filed by the Florida Chamber of Commerce and Florida

    Retail Federation to repeal the law is under review, and we are hopeful

    it will be overturned by mid-July. We support the ongoing efforts of the

    Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Florida Retail Federation to

    challenge the legislation. The safety of our Cast and Guests is our top

    priority.



    Please encourage your teams to practice safe behaviors at any

    location. In an emergency, Cast Members should dial 911. If a gun is

    seen or suspected to be at any location, Cast Members should immediately

    contact their local Human Resources representative or Walt Disney World

    Security at x1990 or 407-560-1990.



    Thanks for your support in verbally sharing this information

    with your teams. I will update you when a final ruling is made in the

    lawsuit.

    Bambi's mom died...it's only fair to make sure Disney employees are as unable to defend themselves as she was...

    In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    If this was their top priority, they wouldn't deny them the ability to defend themselves.

    "When I get my hands on that money, I'll buy the old ladies home and kick the old ladies out.
    I'll have the orphan home torn down and I'll get rid of the police department. Mwa HA HA HA HA HA !!"

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Why aren't the liberals screaming about this corporate exemption? Honestly, I can not fathom a legal reason that one company can be exempted from this.

    Disney has always owned the Florida Legislature and the Governor's Office. For instance they are their own Water Management District. They are exempted from many other state laws. It is pathetic the way the state government have pandered to those pricks over the years.

    I am generally not in favor of specific businesses getting special breaks in legislation, but I disagree with this law in general. If I want to say that my employees canít bring a gun onto my private property that should be my right.

    I am all for the peoples right to bear arms, and I donít have any problem with any law abiding citizen having and carrying basically any kind of firearm, but I also believe that people have the right to limit your actions on land that they own. If I donít want you to bring a firearm onto my land that is my right. Well, I guess in Florida it isnít, but it should be.

    How is it in the gunshine state that it is not legal to have a accessable gun in the car without permit? Sounds like your legislators need reaming while your at it.
