I in no way want to take away a person's right to have a gun. But in the National Parks???
My husband worked in the National Park here. There are a lot of pot growers and meth makers. As the park is public land and cannot be traced to any individual owner, it was the perfect set-up. Now, when these people come into the park they can legally carry weapons? In most cases, gun possession was the only thing these people could be charged with, if they were caught. My husband caught several on their way to check their fields. But gun possession in the park was all he could get them on. Now we are going to take away the one thing that rangers have to stop these dangerous people? Signing this bill is tying the hands of rangers and security in our National Parks.
What do you think?

My dad is a park ranger in Yellowstone every summer for the last 15 years. This is what he said when we discussed it;
They still have a right to transport firearms across the national parks, either disassembled or out of reach. (in the trunk of the car) I have been taking a 22 pistol with me to the national parks for years. I could put the cylinder back in the gun in ten seconds in case of an emergency.
Either they are so insecure they need a loaded gun in their pocket at all times, or it's just a first step toward legalizing shootine and hunting in the National Parks.
