In California, unless a concealed weapons license has been issued, carrying a loaded, concealed firearm in public is generally prohibited. So, it would seem unlikely that you would be able to bring a gun into Universal Studios. You might also want to know if your kids are allowed to bring toy guns into the park to play with that are similar to the guns used in some of the park’s movie themes.
