There might have been a time when he needed to pack some heat. According to The News Of Orange County, this place used to be rockin':
The Daniel Boone Village in its heyday rivaled Tweetsie Railroad. There was a full-size train and actors, a live zoo that featured real bison, a wax museum, a mega slide that you climbed to go down on burlap bags, an ice skating rink and an amphitheatre that featured major stars like Jerry Lee Lewis and Loretta Lynne. The Daniel Boone Village brought in visitors to Hillsborough long before anyone had formally thought in marketing terms. James Freeland did that naturally.
Now? Those attractions are long gone and the Daniel Boone Village Pioneer Muffler Man has been reduced to guarding several antique stores, a barber shop, a Waffle House, and the Orange County Republicans' headquarters.
