A federal judge in Jacksonville, Florida has ruled against Disney in its effort to block employees from bringing guns to work under a new state law. However, U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle did uphold the right of the company to bar customers from bringing guns. This means that Grumby can now pack a sidearm as the ultimate disgruntled employees arrives each morning for work.
Disney has been trying to find a way around the law by claiming a technicality, click here.
Marion Hammer, a spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association, was obviously delighted by the decision and did everything short of firing off her personal sidearm in the air in celebration of “a huge win for the people.” She stated: “The problem has been corporate giants who think they can control everything their employees do or say or everything that goes on a piece of property,” Hammer said. “They are employers, they are property owners. They are not emperors. For crying out loud.” Well, this is the Magic Kingdom Ms. Hammer. Someone has to be an emperor.
Hammer would not say what the next move would be: “I don’t have a crystal ball. Everybody is still reading and rereading the order and figuring out where you go from here. For us this is a huge win.”
Actually, there is at least one crystal ball in the Magic Kingdown, but it is found in the Haunted House, click here. I am not sure if Disney would let Hammer borrow it at this point, however. There is always the magic mirror in the Wicked Witch’s quarters. The mirror, however, is likely now to simply answer the question “who is the fairest shot of them all?”
