Is anyone else surprised that this hasn’t happened before? Terrorists would probably love to stage an attack in a place like Disneyland. Our U.S. Disney parks just recently installed metal detectors and banned toy guns from being sold. Adults can’t wear costumes inside the park…What the heck has our world come to?
This is a developing story but here’s what we have:
Disneyland Paris guards stopped a gunman carrying two weapons and a copy of the Koran inside the park’s hotel, local media reported.
The man was arrested after hotel security spotted him with a pair of low-caliber handguns, a box of ammo and the religious text, RTL reported.
No one was injured when the unidentified man was taken into custody.
Police believe the man may have traveled to the Happiest Place on Earth with an accomplice. Cops have an accomplice in custody.
No other details were immediately available.
There are several hotels around Disneyland Paris, which is east of the French capital and is among Europe’s most-visited tourist attractions.
France remains under a state of emergency since a series of synchronized terror attacks killed 130 people across the city in November. The attacks, carried out by ISIS fighters, targeted a soccer stadium, a music hall and a row of trendy cafes.
Disney installed metal detectors at its Florida and California parks in December amid rising fears of gun violence. The U.S. locations also stopped selling toy guns and banned adults from wearing costumes.
