Man Arrested for Bringing Gun Into Holy Land Experience

You would think this would be the one theme park that would allow -- even encourage -- arms. Because of God and guns and all. But... yeah, no. Not the case.

A New Jersey man was arrested Sunday for attempting to bring a gun inside the Holy Land Experience theme park in Orlando.

The man was vacationing with his family when he told them he needed to "talk with God," according to Orange County Sheriff's deputies. And when you wanna talk to God, you gotta pack some heat. Just to show him you're one of his people.

The man, whose name has not been released, was reportedly recently discharged from the military.

At 7:20 a.m Sunday, theme park employees spotted the man and called police.

He didn't get farther than the entrance since the popular religious theme park is closed on Sundays. (No going into the Lord's theme park on the Lord's day!)

When cops arrived, the man did not resist arrest. 

He was taken to Lakeside Alternatives in Eatonville under the Baker Act, where he is to be held for 72 hours under psychiatric evaluation, according to Orlando police.

No one was injured in the incident.
