The trigger-happiest place on earth?

A Georgia woman got herself banned from Disney World after allegedly stashing a loaded 9mm gun behind a planter outside the Magic Kingdom — and then attempting to blame it on her 6-year-old son.

Marcia Temple, 27, was arrested on Oct. 8 by deputies with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) after her strange behavior was flagged to Disney security by a worker with Advent Health, who was taking temperatures at the entrance, per a police report.

The worker told security she saw Temple remove something from a stroller and place it behind a planter, according to the Sentinel. An Orange County Deputy responded to find a pink purse with a loaded 9mm handgun inside.

When asked about the gun, Temple reportedly told police she told her 6-year-old son to hold the gun while she went to get her brother so he could retrieve the gun and put it back in her car.

“He put [the purse] down, and messed with the plants and I put them back, but I didn’t know he put it down and I didn’t know he left it over here,” Temple told police.

Police say the woman ditched a purse, which contained the loaded gun, just outside of an entrance to the Magic Kingdom.
