ORLANDO, Fla. — Planning to go to a firing range later, Mustafa Alameen, an Iraqi immigrant, said he forgot he had 100 rounds of ammunition and a handgun in an otherwise empty stroller when he arrived at Disney Springs this year. The 21-year-old stepped through the security detector and when an alarm went off, he realized his mistake. But it was too late, and he was arrested.

Donald Trump attacked the Republican governor of Arizona during a speech in Phoenix on Saturday.
Trump said Gov. Doug Ducey, "doesn't do a damn thing" because he refused to go along with Trump's efforts to overturn the election in Arizona, which was won by Joe Biden.
The former president discussed a phone call he had with Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward.
"Why wouldn't the governor want an audit?" Trump says he asked Ward.
Trump want on to say Ducey always wanted to be in the front row at his rallies.
"But I'd introduce and him and I wouldn't get much of an applause and I'd get a lot of boos and I kept saying, 'You know, this guy's not very popular.' But now, you know what, he's not popular with me either," Trump said.
Trump also said he told people that he would refuse to endorse Ducey if the governor ran for U.S. Senate in Arizona. Democrats captured both of the state's U.S. Senate seats during Trump's time in office.
Donald Trump traveled to Arizona on Saturday to push his "Big Lie" about election fraud against the backdrop of the widely-panned Arizona audit, which began on April 22 and continues to this day.
The event is being hosted by the far-right group Turning Point Action, which is headed by Charlie Kirk.
The event was attended by Republican Reps. Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar and Debbie Lesko.
Before Trump spoke, Arizona state Sen. Michelle Ugenti was booed off stage for perceived insufficient fealty to the former president.
